Is it me or are the days getting hotter in this part of the world?
Not only do I prefer eating food that requires no cooking, I also get thirsty every five minutes.
I thought it’s just right to make my favorite drink of all time — Lemonade!! I also thought we should take advantage of Watermelons which are cheaper this time of the year to our good old Lemonade a twist.
This Watermelon Lemonade is good company while I do a marathon of my favorite crime/drama series. I’m done with NCIS L.A. and Hawaii Five-O. Yaaayy!! Finally!
Tonight, I shall move on to the latest season of Arrow…
I initially thought this Watermelon Lemonade is a bad idea and that it’s gonna be weird. It’s surprisingly not and it turned out to be quite refreshing. I think I’m gonna be adding some mint leaves next time.
My niece Cyvrine told me I should call it WaterLemon. I should, shouldn’t I?
