Since it’s Fourth of July/Independence Day weekend and very hot around most of the country, here’s a refreshing drink recipe to help celebrate our country’s birth from chef Emeril Lagasse (from today’s USA Today). I recommend that you alter this Watermelon Limeade recipe a little, either with alcohol, if you’re seeking an adult beverage, or as I’d make it, with less sugar for a tarter and healthier taste, plus I’d lighten it up by diluting it with club soda and ice. It’s quick, easy, and great for an Independence Day party/barbecue or alone outside later on during the summer.
Regardless of how you make it, enjoy. I’ll bet the Founding Fathers would have enjoyed it. Hits the spot. Print it out for your recipe collection and upcoming summer events.
