Fresh watermelon-mint fizz—this drink is one of the favourites in my home. I love to do experiments in cooking, and that’s why my funda is—cooking is food engineering.
My son loves cold drinks; you can relate to me if your child is fond of junk foods and beverages. Although I don’t have a great passion for cooking, but my son is a foodie, he loves variations in food, so for him, I do all that I can do. Juices are healthy, so being a mother during the summer season, I used to give him watermelon juice frequently. Then I realised he is getting bored with this plain salt-pepper sprinkled watermelon juice. We all know Necessity is the mother of invention, I too tried something different with watermelon and then I came up with this delicious drink. It brought a lot of joy to me when I saw him enjoying this new drink—watermelon-mint fizz. Now, in my family, everyone loves it. I am sure many of you already make this but who haven’t tried this mocktail yet, give it a shot.
