WATERMELON WITH MENTHOLS SWEETS




This is a gluten-free recipe

DOUBLE THE PROPORTIONS 


i-PAD VERSION
The juice of a lemon – 3 tbsp of caster sugar – half a watermelon (diced into little cubes) – 8 hard menthol throat sweets (I take Foxy’s glacier mint).

In a large bowl, stir to dissolve the lemon juice with the sugar.
Add the watermelon and leave to marinate in the fridge.
Meanwhile, put the sweets between 2 sheets of baking paper and crush with a rolling pin to make a fine powder.
When serving, present the crushed sweets in a separate bowl for guests to sprinkle…
You can serve it on crushed ice if you like…
