Since watermelon may increase your libido, I thought a drink using this licopene rich fruit was in order. Starting with a recipe I found in Everyday Food, I designed this summer drink to use an overripe watermelon and an over abundance of limoncello. Hope you enjoy!
- 1 cup fresh lemon juice
- 1 cup fresh mint leaves
- 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
- 1 small watermelon, rind remove, flesh cut into hunks
- 1/2 cup vodka
- 3/4 cup limoncello
Muddle the lemon juice, mint and brown sugar in large pitcher or drink container. If you squeezed the lemon juice from fresh lemons, throw those in there too. In a blender, purée the watermelon in batches, then pour through fine mesh strainer into the pitcher. Stir to combine. Add vodka and limoncello. Serve over ice.
