Wishing you luck today on Melbourne Cup day. The nation will stop, our hearts will be beating fast, those glorious creatures will fly down the track and we will marvel at their grace and majesty. After some celebrating, there’s nothing like getting your head wet to blow away those cobwebs. And of course, a big shot of watermelon juice to help with the rest. While you’re sporting your wet Balmoral swim shorts post dip, whip out your wallet from your waterproof wallet and ask your local to make you one of these.
¼ of a large cucumber
½ inch piece of ginger
1 cup of watermelon diced
3 leaves of basil
A little blending and serve with ice.
