Today is the first official day of summer — the summer solstice — and one of my favorite days of the year. So witchy! In honor of this most holy of days, behold my new favorite summertime drink, born out of ingenuity, but mostly randomness, where most of my ‘ideas’ seem to materialize from.
We bought this beautiful mini melon in Chinatown to make a watermelon, mint and feta salad, but when we finally got around to opening it, it was far too ripe to eat. We thought it had gone off. But! I suggested we throw the whole soupy, slushy mess into a blender and voila. Watermelon juice. One ingredient. Cold and refreshing and slightly sweet.
