This drink represents some of the best I know in the summer. Watermelon gives me so many good summer memories. It was always with great pleasure when as a child I was served large watermelon slices on a hot summer day!
- 3 tbsp frozen watermelon cubes
- 4 cl sugar brine
- 1 båt lime
- 4 cl good rum
The mild and sweet taste, tempting red color and a refreshing feeling. It is rare to see a dish of watermelon that is not eaten, watermelon is so good! In this week's drink I have taken the tastes and memories from childhood and transferred it to a wonderful summer drink. Watermelon Daiquiri has been a bit overshadowed by the more famous Strawberry Daiquiri, but now it's time to buy watermelon and try this heavenly summer drink.
Watermelon Daiquiri is easy to make, but to get the best results you need some preparation. I want the taste of watermelon to be as prominent as possible, so I do not use ice cubes, but freeze cubes of watermelon. Here I will show you by far the easiest way to make cubes from a whole watermelon. Put the watermelon cubes in the freezer for a minimum of 2 hours.
Once you have put the watermelon in the freezer, it is time to make sugar brine. This is easily done by boiling equal parts of water and sugar in a saucepan. Boil for 1-2 minutes, turn off the heat and cool down. Pour into a bottle or similar and put in the fridge. The sugar brine can be left in the fridge for many days.
Just before serving the guests, take out some good spoons of watermelon and pour into a blender together with rum, lime juice and brine. Run smoothly in the blender and pour into a nice glass. Garnish with a little grated lime peel and a small boat with watermelon. Serve and enjoy a drink with a taste of summer.
This drink is also very good without alcohol.
