Water-'lemon' Mint Cooler

It is scorching summer in Dubai and everyone is out to find ways to escape the heat. From being holed up at homes and offices to cooler recipes to bring down the heat.

Watermelon is probably the best summer fruit. I remember the times when my mom used to serve us freshly cut watermelon when we were back from our evening games or when our father was back from his badminton games. Watermelon was the delicacy at our summer coaching camps as well.

I was on the lookout for a new cooler recipe when my cousin suggested this combination which she constantly uses to beat the Delhi heat.

As to the name of this cooler, my husband suggested it and I found it quite unique too:)

There you are - The Water-'lemon' Mint Cooler:



  1. Watermelon - 2 cups de-seeded and diced
  2. Cucumber - 1 cup diced
  3. Lemon - 1 small size
  4. Mint Leaves - 2 sprigs
  5. Sugar - 2 tsp
  6. Salt - 1/2 tsp
  7. Ice cubes

Add the diced watermelon, cucumber and mint leaves into a juicer and blend it.
Stir in the sugar, salt and add lemon juice.

Pour into two glasses and serve with ice cubes and garnish of mint.

You may also note - 
  • Increase or decrease the sugar and salt quantity as per your choice.
  • Remember to serve it fresh.
  • Alternatively, you can just crush all the ingredients together using a fork or spoon instead of using a blender.
