Watermelon Granedine Mocktail

by foodzesty

Hey friends,

After the afternoon thunderstorm, as usual, it got very hot and humid.  We needed something that was refreshing, and so in came the Watermelon Mocktail. 🙂  I picked up some Watermelon from a small Turkish Supermarket we have in our area and it just so happened that the Watermelon was from Greece!!  how about that!!   

How the weather has changed. I remember when we first moved to NL the summers were wet and chilly…but 8 years later the weather has changed to higher temperatures climbing into the 40s and higher…Hot Hot Hot!!  We had temps in the high 30’s back in May.  We did have a low spell after that but now I guess finally having summer weather.  

Some may have not heard of Grenadine Syrup…so it basically is made from pomegranate juice, sugar, and water.  I read the other day that they are now using blackcurrant juice instead of pomegranate juice.  I was not able to find pomegranate so I used a store-bought Grenadine Syrup for the Mocktail.   But using the original fruit definitely makes a huge difference. 

So, if Summer weather is in your area, country, region I think you just find this Watermelon Mocktail a delicious surprise.   A very simple recipe that you can prepare in less than 10 minutes.  Super delicious and solo colorful 🙂
