Friday Cocktail – Watermelon & Lime Shandy

by on October 21, 2016

Okay. I’m sorry. The truth is…yes, another Shandy. I wish I could promise you it would be the last :(, sigh…I’m thinking of a tangelo version because tangelos are in season but first, watermelon.

Don’t you just love the colour?

This has to be one of my favourite shandies. Why? The surprise – watermelon has flavour, as in actual, recongisable, loveable flavour. That stumps me.

Personally, I think the sweetness is enhanced by a touch of sugar and freshly squeezed lime juice, added to taste.

So, I considered adding some fresh mint but felt the herby mintiness would detract from the very tropical, almost deckchair flavour that watermelon brought.

Definitely one of my favourites.

If you have ideas for more shandies :), share them please!
