Perfect Mocktail for Warm Weather

see I’m so sorry it’s been so long since I’ve signed in on here. I was incredibly sick this winter with the mumps and I feel like I am just getting my life back on track now. I promise to write more often now that my health is better!

I haven’t had an alcoholic beverage in ages, but one I of my favorite things is to enjoy a nice cocktail after a long day. These days I make mocktails but they’re just as satisfying! For anyone else searching for a yummy mocktail recipe or something kid friendly, I thought I’d share a recipe I am loving at the moment! Perfect for warm weather and patio drinks with friends. I found the recipe at: http://www.myrecipes.com/recipe/watermelon-lime-soda

Watermelon-Lime Soda

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup chopped peeled fresh ginger
  • 10 cup diced watermelon
  • 3/4 cup fresh lime juice
  • 4 cups chilled club soda
  • Ice
  • Garnish: mint sprigs

Directions

Combine sugar, water, and ginger in a small saucepan over high heat. Cook until sugar ­dissolves, stirring with a whisk. Remove from heat; cover and let stand 15 minutes. Strain; discard solids. Working in batches, place diced watermelon and fresh lime juice in a blender; process until smooth. Strain watermelon mixture through a fine sieve into a pitcher; discard solids. Stir in sugar syrup and chilled club soda. Serve over ice; garnish, if desired.

Big hugs,
