    Watermelon lemonade

    I love watermelon. Is one of my favourite fruits – every time I eat watermelon I remember about my childhood happy times… How all the family use to gather in the garden in the hot summer evening and just ate watermelon without even cutting it(us kids). I don’t have a picture but if you would like to know what I mean have a look at the one below. It really resembles how I used to it as a kid. My youngest is just like me.

However I still consider this a lemonade as the lemon is the one that comes through when drinking it. Ingredients for the lemonade(for about 1l): 2 lemon 4 oranges 2 tbsp runny honey sparkly water to top up First wash and cut the lemons and oranges in half.
