Watermelon Citrus-Ade with Frozen Kiwi Balls

I was visiting my good friend Purdy’s site, and she had posted this wonderful lemonade, or should I say citrus-aid. First thing to note, I was particularly thirsty that day and lemonade is my go to drink, after water.

Instead of plain ole lemonade, (no offence to lemonade) she had decided to add other citrus fruit. Along with lemons she squeezed in a couple of grapefruits and some limes. Totally original, just like Purdy.

She also always encourages you to mix up her recipes, and make them your own. I love that.

So I did.   I started with her amazing citrus-aid and then added my own flair. I might have over done it with the fancy frozen kiwi balls, until I tasted it. It just belongs. Trust me.

So here you have it. Watemelon Citrus-aid with frozen kiwi balls. I hope I did you proud Purdy with my own twist on your new classic.

Watermelon Citrus-Ade with Frozen Kiwi Balls

[adapted from http://butterbasilandbreadcrumbs.com/2014/06/24/citrus-ade/]

3 Kiwi
1 Teaspoon of Sugar
2 Lemons
2 Pink Grape Fruit
2 Limes
3 Cups of Water
¼ Sugar
6 Cups of Watermelon, Cut up.

In a blender or food processor, puree kiwi and sugar, until smoth. Place in a freezer safe container with a lid and freeze for 1 to 2 hours.

Squeeze all 3 citrus fruits, into a large bowl. I ran mine through a strainer, cause I don’t like pulp. Add 3 cups of water and ¼ of sugar, stir until the sugar is dissolved.

Place the watermelon into a blender, and puree until smooth. Pass through a fine strainer, into the large bowl with the citrus mix.

To server, stir the watermelon citrus-ade and pour into the glasses with ice.

After 1-2 hours, take out the frozen kiwi, and using a melon baller, scoop out a ball of kiwi and place in the glass of watermelon citus-ade, and server with a lemon slice.
