Another good one for a non-alcoholic option, or can be mixed to make a pretty good long iced cocktail.

The soft version (makes about 1 litre)
Measures & Instructions:

  • juice 1/2 a watermelon (or enough to get a about 660ml of juice)
  • 330ml  home-made lemonade mix

Mix the ingredients together & add freshly squeezed lemon juice to taste – you don’t want this too sweet, it should be refreshing.
Bottle and refrigerate. Serve over ice and top with soda.


The hard version
Measures & Instructions:

  • 30-60ml vodka or gin
  • watermelon-ade mix (see above)
  • splash of soda

Add watermelon-ade mix to the vodka or gin in a tall glass with plenty of ice. Stir & top with a splash of soda for a bit of fizz.
