Notes

  • Below tips are common to all watermelon recipes given above. The prep time for the slushy does not include the freezing time.
  • Adding a sweetener is optional. That will depend on the sweetness of your watermelon.
  • Adjust mint leaves and lemon juice quantities to suit your taste.
  • Add a pinch of black salt to the drinks gives that Indian touch!!
  • You can also experiment with various combination of flavours. Instead of lemon juice, you can use any other fruit juice to give it a tangy twist.
  • If you want to include alcohol, add one shot per serving while blending the mixture.
