Do you need something a bit different this summer? Try my Spicy Watermelon Mint Mocktail. It is a refreshing twist on a fun summer drink.
Dip the glass in lime juice and the rim in sugar or smoked pineapple sugar from Jenno’s Homestead
Add 2 large ice cubes
Juice from 1 large lime or 1/4 cup like juice
1 1/2 cups watermelon juice filtered after blending or you can store bought watermelon juice
2 squirts of @franksredhot hot sauce
1 Tbsp maple syrup
3 muddled mint leaves
Mix all its a stir stick.
Top with 1/4 cup carbonated water
If it’s not sweet enough for you, add more maple syrup. Sprinkle a little bit of the smoked pineapple sugar and some sliced jalapenos into the drink.
So this recipe will depend on the sweetness of your watermelon. If it’s really ripe then try this as is, if it’s not as ripe, add sweetener.
Feel free to spike it if you want a cocktail instead:)
