It's summer so we thought it would be good to share a favourite drink from Scratch Food Truck. This truck is the brain-child of Minnesota-raised Chef Geoff King and wife Aimee King. The concept of Scratch is about sustainable/local food made fresh daily with a Pacific Islander/Asian influence. Growing up where food was family, celebration, tradition, and life sculpted our menu. Read the article for the recipe.
Here's a delicious summer drink you can try at home. Add vodka for an amazing cocktail!
2 1/2 cups lemon juice
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 jalapeno, seeded, deveined and chopped
1/2 seedless watermelon, chopped
16 fresh mint leaves, optional
Lemon slices, for serving
In batches, combine 12 cups water, the lemon juice, sugar, jalapeno, watermelon and mint, if using, in a blender. Blend to a puree.
Allow the puree to steep for 10 minutes before straining it through a fine mesh sieve. Chill well.
Serve chilled, with ice and a lemon slice floating at the top.
