Watermelon drink

Watermelon drink / Ingveri-arbuusijook

It's VERY hot here. For the last week or two, the usually moderate summer temperatures have been replaced with about 28-30 Celsius, and the weather forecast doesn't forecast end to that heat any time soon. Perfect excuse for cold and refreshing drinks. One of my favorites has been a combination of watermelon, grated ginger and lots of crushed ice.

How do you keep yourself cool these days??

Ega praegu jah muud süüa/juua saagi, kui just sellised asjad, mis jahutavad ja värskendavad nagu su arbuusikokteil.
Ülekuumenemisest päästavad meid jääga joogid, jäätis, külmad supid-süüa on ju vaatamata kuumusele ka midagi vaja. Õnneks on lähedal ka jahutav meri. Ja muidugi külm dušš:)

see on hea asi egiptuses elades sai sellist arbuusimahla/kokteili tihti teha lisades ka maasikaid ja viigimarju.
syya ja juua kasulikum sellise kuumaga ikka soojad ja kuumad soogid kuna kylm duss ja jaaga joogid on ainult korraks keha mahajahutav mis laiendab poorid veelgi ja hakkab hullemini palav

I make something similar, but to be honest no ginger, no ice, just pureed watermelon, sometimes with few strawberries or raspberries :)

Ice water water or iced tea with a wedge of lemon squeezed into it. Pure and simple and simply delicious and refreshing during these hot, humid summers.

I stay cool by drinking water throughout the day,and I have a pool. and I cook later in the evening when it cools down outdoors on the grill.

This beautiful watermelon drink would go very well with white tequila!

Kõrberahvas pruugib palavusega tõepoolest jahutavat (!) teed, soovitavalt rohelist.

Arbuus on kahtlemata ideaalne toit palavusega, aga miks lisada ingverit, see ju soojendab keret ja seda pole praegu vaja? :)
