This refreshing summer drink, made from ingredients found at your local farmers market and Pure Leaf Sweet Tea, is one of Gail Simmons’ favorites. Find the recipe below, or let Gail show you how!
Watermelon Cucumber Refresher 2 servings
Ingredients: 4 sprigs of tarragon 3 cups of diced seedless watermelon 1/2 of a seedless hothouse cucumber 3 tablespoons of lime juice Pinch of cayenne 1 bottle Pure Leaf Sweet Tea
Directions: 1. Add tarragon to the Pure Leaf Sweet Tea. Heat the mixture on the stovetop. Let it come to a simmer, then turn off the stove and let it steep for about 10 minutes. 2. Pour the tea mixture through a strainer to remove the tarragon leaves. 3. Puree the watermelon, cucumber, lime juice and cayenne pepper in a blender. 4. Divide the watermelon mixture between two ice-filled glasses. Top each glass with the Pure Leaf Sweet Tea/tarragon mixture. 5. Garnish with fresh tarragon.
Note: To make a cocktail, add a 1-ounce shot of tequila or gin to each drink.
