{Valentine's Day Special} Watermelon Ginger Limeade Recipe


“Love is that condition in which the happiness of another person is essential to your own.” 
~ Robert A. Heinlein, Stranger in a Strange Land

There are different kinds of love - romantic love, selfless love, those enriching relationships which we tend to share with our parents and siblings and above all self love. Yes, loving oneself and acknowledging who we are and how we are is also a form of love which most of us ignore.

Love is also about little things like - To be happy. To be healthy. To have peace of mind. To work towards fulfillment of those cherished dreams. And we really don't need a special day to remember these. Valentine's Day personally is a time when I just pause to get my priorities right and pamper myself and loved ones around me.

Valentine's Day is also a day of color red. - red roses, red ribbons, red colored food, red heart shaped greeting cards and even red colored gadgets. An overload of red stuff I say! Going with the theme, I made a special beverage for you all - Watermelon Ginger Limeade. With just 5 ingredients (water included) one can make this in a jiffy. Forget for just Valentine's Day. This is even perfect as a refreshing drink anytime of the day. :-)


This drink is perfect for any day actually, especially hot summer days maybe? 

Just few everyday ingredients and there you have it!

Couldn't just stop myself from adding all those hearts around ;-)

I am a sucker for teddy bears, did I ever tell you that? ;-)
