Watermelon and Grapefruit Punch | Refreshing Summer Drink

Make drinking water that bit more interesting with this refreshing drink idea. Ideal for those scorching hot summer months.

You'll need:
- 1/2 watermelon (cut into 15-20 bite-size cubes)
- 2 litres water
- peel from 2 large grapefruits
- juice from 2 large grapefruits
- 1/2 cup maple syrup
- fresh herbs (mint or basil)

Freeze the watermelon to form "watermelon ice cubes".
Fill a jug with 2 litres of chilled water. Add the grapefruit peel, grapefruit juice and maple syrup.
Crush the fresh herbs to release some of the oils then add to the water.
Add the frozen watermelon cubes just before serving.


  1. What's the local market name for mint leaves?

    1. I don't know if it has a local market name but if you're based in Lagos, you can find it in stores, markets and an open fruit and veg shop in Idowu Martins in VI. If you'd like more specific details you can get in touch with my blogger friend at
