Melonade(kattha mitha) drink

Lemonade is a great thirst quencher for summer. Las Vegas has been really hot with scorching heat. Here are some tips to keep yourself cool and fresh.

Lemonade has lot of added sugar and other added flavors. So I thought how about some fresh fruit melons juice with some freshly squeezed lemon  and a hint of kala namak(black salt) available at Indian markets. It will taste good if you have to add some flavored sparkling water.

The take off is fresh melon juice which has natural sugar and  lemons.

1 cup freshly cut melon(orange, green or red) or mix of each or individual.
3/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
1/4 cup sparkling water(optional) if you want fizz in your drink
of kala namak
Slice of melon/orange/lemon(garnish)

Preparation:

In a juicer, extract melon juice. One should yield half to 3/4 cup. Squeeze limes to extract 3/4 cup juice.
Mix the melon juice and lime juice. Add all the above ingredients to make the concoction. Feel free to add sparling water. Add  few ice cubes. Serve drink in your favorite glass. Garnish with lime wedges/ orange,and melon slice.

Enjoy this drink at your leisure!

Shukriya!
