This recipe is from The New Soul Vegetarian Cookbook. My sister-in-law gave it to me. I make this drink whenever anyone has the slightest sign of a cold. The ginger BURNS! But your cold disappears. I am starting to make it daily now, with less ginger, since I noticed that an increase in my ginger intake has been clearing out my sinuses!
This delightful summer drink is sweet, refreshing & a lovely pink. The lemon juice & ginger add just the right punch. Watermelon is a wonder food which is delicious, nutritious, low-calorie, easy-to-find (well, in summer) & economical. It is high in vitamins A & C, potassium and the antioxidant lycopene which may help reduce the inflammation that contributes to asthma, atherosclerosis, diabetes, colon cancer, arthritis, etc. I like to tuck a bottle of this in the cooler to enjoy on a picnic or after a hike.
