Top Review by Thorsten

What a delicious and refreshing combination of water melon and mint. And the colour of this beverage is a highlight as well. Put a fresh mint leaf into each glas to have a wonderful colour contrast. The mint flavor goes very well together with the fruity sweetness of the melon. Try this recipe to beat the heat on a hot summer day.
