      What a delicious and refreshing combination of water melon and mint. And the colour of this beverage is a highlight as well. Put a fresh mint leaf into each glas to have a wonderful colour contrast. The mint flavor goes very well together with the fruity sweetness of the melon. Try this recipe to beat the heat on a hot summer day.

      This was such a wonderful alternative to many of the watermelon drinks we have--and simpler too! We used this as one of our beverages for our Memorial Day Wkend BBQ and I just loved it! Some argued that there was too much mint, but I say that it was just perfect and complimented the sweet watermelon well. Thanks Molly53, I'll be making this one again!
