This is my first original recipe and is still very much a work in progress! I live in Texas and when it gets hot, it gets HOT! One of the best ways I've found to cool off in the blistering summer months is an ice cold glass of hibiscus iced tea made by someone who really knows how to make it. It has a sour-sweet citrusy flavor that is incredibly refreshing.
Something is still missing, so as always, please let me know if you have any suggestions as to how this can be improved or added/subtracted upon.
I know there are tons of Watermelon Lemonades out there but, I was wanting to work up a mix I could use in my POD and be able to taste it without using 15 =% flavoring in it. As I like to mix with much lower %'s. So I knew I wanted to use flavors that were just stronger more vibrant flavors and what better flavor combo for that than Watermelon Lemonade.
I'm not a huge fan of Koolada so I went super low with it in this mix but it worked out wonderfully for me. It gives that slight cool icy feeling on the back of my throat and my teeth on the exhale just like When you take a big ICE COLD Drink. The watermelon and mix of lemons are really well balanced in this IMO. Watermelon upfront and tart/sweet lemonade on the back end followed by that cool bite from the koolada. It is sweet but not overly sweet which is how I prefer my mixes to be (just sweet enough). Over all I think this mix turned out just Lovely.
I let it steep for 3 days before trying it, 3rd day it was really good and smoothed out each day after.
Give it a mix and let me know what you think..
