Watermelon Mint Lemonade to Keep You Cool

Hey, y’all

The absolute hell-like heat that’s been around for quite a while now in our little town is really getting on my nerves. So I felt like lemonade! That’s a god idea! Now, you get a really straight-forward recipe in Beyonce’s music video for “All Night” lmao, but I was like “How can I take this classic to the next level?” (not the song, the drink. there’s no way on earth to take a beyonce song to the next level, her voice is gOLD.) And this came to my mind: “What is the fruit that screams summer, the fruit that everyone loves, the fruit that is an icon?” and then thought (i’ve been drinking) “WATERMELON” (wow another beyonce reference love me please). After this idea came to my mind, I thought I was being a frigging GENIUS. I thought this was a whole new concept that was going to go vIRAL. But I googled it, to see if it truly is an original idea, but no. Tens of thousands of pages popped up and my pride slooooowly drowned away,just like beyonce at the end of the “Formation” music video, on top of that police car. ( i NEED to stop ), which FINALLY brings us to today’s post. You know what they say,..when life gives you lemons, keep them! Cause hey, free lemons!

 


Ingredients:


  • about 2 cups worth of watermelon (i made a small batch, about 2 Mason Jars)
  • 1/2 cup of water
  • the juice of half a lemon and a lime, if you like (you really don’t need more, because it would turn out REALLY sour, since I didn’t add any sweeteners)
  • several mint leaves

Directions:


 

  • Add your watermelon and water to a blender, and blend till you get a juice.

  • Next, add the lemon juice and mint leaves.

  • If you want it a bit sweeter, you can dissolve some honey into your lemon juice and then add it on top of the watermelon juice, but I really don’t think that’s necessary, since the fruit itself is so sweet  😀

Enjoy!

It is super refreshing and delicious, really deserves a sip! Gotta sip that lemonade after all  =))

Love ya. Cheers, bye x

Hot Chocolate With A Twist

I’m not over winter yet, OKAY…DEAL WITH IT.

So, I decided to share with you the hot chocolate recipes that I do, when I just don’t want to be basic af. Enjoy ❤

1. Spicy Hot Chocolate

Have you ever thought of putting Cayenne Pepper into hot chocolate? It’s amazing. You should try it.

You basically just make yourself a cup of hot chocolate and add a tablespoon of Cayenne Pepper ( NOT black pepper tho…ew) and num away. It doesn’t get better than this.

Put about 3 tablespoons of sponge cake mix ( or whatever mix you’d like, I tried Red Velvet, it was UNBELIEVABLE) and add warm milk on top. Sell this. Right now. Don’t you wanna be a millionaire? SELL THIS.

4. Red Wine Hot Chocolate

Umm, can we just take a moment and appreciate how this is a thing. God bless whoever invented this.

Make yourself a cup of hot chocolate…again. Surprise-surprise, add some red wine to it.

Let me just tell you, hot chocolate and red wine are relationship goals. Still thinking of a ship name.

5. Maple Syrup Hot Chocolate

BISH WHET?! Isn’t maple syrup supposed to be on pancakes? DA HELL. *Chill out, Mason*

Relax. This is surprisingly really good.

You just make yourself a cup of hot chocolate *for the last time, I promise* and add maple syrup. BOOM. It works best if you use unsweetened cocoa powder, so it adds a nice sweet hint.
