This delightful summer drink is sweet, refreshing & a lovely pink. The lemon juice & ginger add just the right punch. Watermelon is a wonder food which is delicious, nutritious, low-calorie, easy-to-find (well, in summer) & economical. It is high in vitamins A & C, potassium and the antioxidant lycopene which may help reduce the inflammation that contributes to asthma, atherosclerosis, diabetes, colon cancer, arthritis, etc. I like to tuck a bottle of this in the cooler to enjoy on a picnic or after a hike.
