About Watermelon and Mint Refresher

India being a tropical country has some areas which never have cold or winter.Proceeding from the exact middle of the country or Madhya Pradesh to Maharashtra and the coastal and Southern parts of the country are those areas which remain warm throughout the year.In Maharashtra after the rains end in September,October and November are the months when the Sun’s rays are at one of their fiercest and the humidity saps the energy from the body.Here is where this drink works. Due to the availability of fresh fruit all around the year,its complete wisdom to utilise them in the best way possible to build up our health and nutrient quotient within the body.This drink is extremely simple to make as well as delicious and refreshing for the mind and body.With media tabloids screaming against the use of packaged soft drinks and aerated beverages its time now to go back to what our ancestors ate and drank and this drink is surely one of them. A ripe Watermelon is what you need for this but in case the Watermelon you have is not so ripe then put 1-2 tbsp of powdered sugar,honey or whatever sweetener you desire.A friend of mine adds palm sugar but I believe that the lovely and refreshing taste of Watermelon is somehow barred by the taste of palm (which is in itself an ethereal feeling but not in combo with Watermelon).I always use powdered sugar.
