“Use Your Melon” for NZ WATERMELON MONTH: Watermelon juice with lemongrass and mint

It is lovely and hot in New Zealand now, the perfect time for watermelon and for fresh juices, and this one is so refreshing! 

Ingredients

Watermelon
Ice
Fresh lemon grass
Fresh mint

Blend the watermelon flesh with ice and a a little bit of water  (just to get the blender moving) and then pass the juice through a sieve (not too fine, just enough to keep the seed pieces out). Pour into a jag and then stir with a stick of lemongrass (best if you can leave the juice in the fridge with the lemongrass for at least 30 minutes). The mint is from my garden and it is quite strong, so I added it only at the end, for decoration and a hint of fragrance. 
Serve with more ice if you like.

I am sure that there will be readers that will think of vodka and other boozes, so a little tip is that this drink is is also good mixed with Prosecco!

Kiwi bloggers, if you have some have some watermelon recipes and you would like to take part in NZ Watermelon Month (there are prizes!) all you have to do is to post them with an accompanying photo on your blog. You can email the link to jennifer@saltandpepperpr.com or simply tag LeaderBrand if you choose to post your blog link on social media.
