This Fresh Watermelon Cucumber Mint Juice is absolutely refreshing. You’d be surprised at just how easy it is to make, using all natural and organic ingredients, in just under 30 minutes. It’s certainly the best drink of the summer.
Who else loves a glass of good ole’ natural juice? My little guy, that’s who!
This past weekend has been a whirlwind. I was super busy with work, had a great time making awesome recipes, enjoyed my Birthday, and everything in between. It was most certainly jam packed.
However, this recipe was by far one of my favorites, besides this delicious Mango Cheesecake + Chocolate Graham Cracker Crust, which I made as my Birthday cake.
If you’ve been an amid reader of Orchids + Sweet Tea, then you know that I often steer away from the traditional. Moreover, I thoroughly enjoyed the tropical flavor of these cheesecakes.
Of course, I’m more of a foodie and sweets lover, but I have had a few tries at making drinks and I love it. It’s definitely something I’m dedicating myself to doing more often.
If you know me, then you’ll know that I’m truly a Southern Girl at heart, so I couldn’t make a drink without steering towards my Southern roots, with this Traditional Southern Iced Sweet Tea.
There’s nothing like a large ice-filled glass of freshly brewed sweet tea, especially on the sunniest of days.
If you’re more health-conscious and love a bit of spice to your drink, then this Natural Homemade Lemon Ginger Ale recipe is the way to go!
It’s all about the spicy ginger flavor paired with the bit of tartness from the lemon when it comes to this recipe.
You can add a bit of fizz for a nice bubbly traditional ginger ale or keep things simple by drinking this Lemon-Ginger drink without any tweaks.
Overall, this recipe is completely natural, easy to make, and perfect for any day or season.
To start, combine the water and pure cane sugar (or honey) in a small pot and boil on medium-high heat, whisking until sugar fully dissolves.
Remove sugar mixture from heat and add mint leaves to hot mixture and let everything steep for about 20-25 minutes, covered with a pot cover.
Once sugar-mint mixture has fully infused in it’s flavor, add it to the blender along with the sliced watermelons, cucumber, and blend for about 2 minutes, on low speed. **NOTE: Be sure to split mixture if blender gets too full to avoid a mess.**
Add in lemon juice and blender for another 30 seconds. Strain juice into your prepared pitcher or mason jars.
