Summer Refreshments & Giveaway

I can't believe that the ballet is now over! Yesterday was our last performance of Peter Pan for the season. In many ways it is lovely that it has come to a close as relaxation may now be possible and I have a little bit of time to get my head around the fact that next week is Christmas, but I will miss it! It has been a fabulous season with truly wonderful people, and it will be extremely strange, as it always is, to go back to life without the routine of seeing our little pit family every day. 

By the way - how is it Christmas next week?? 

To help myself get into the spirit of Christmas, and  get through the terrible heat we have been having in Perth I decided to make myself a huge jug of this delicious Watermelon, Lime and Soda refreshment, and team up with the delightful Allie from Call Me Sassafras as well as some other lovely ladies to offer you a chance to win a $50 Etsy gift card! 

A huge shout out to Jen from Near and Far Montana, Codi from The Art of Balance and Z from Sometimes Z Takes Pictures, for making this all possible. I highly recommend taking the time to stop by and check out their blogs. 

All details are below :) In the mean time, curious of how to make this simply scrumptious summer refreshment?

All you will need is a watermelon, 4 limes, a handful of mint and some soda water. 

First things first,  juice your watermelon and limes together however you can. Like many we don't actually have a juicer, so if need be, take a leaf out of our book and dig through your utensil draw to find implements that may help you out.
Thinly chop up a couple of mint leaves and mix in with the watermelon and lime. 
Fill a jug half way up with your juice mix and top up with soda water. 
Add a few thin slices of lime, a couple of sprigs of mint and some ice - you now have the perfect refreshment to drink away those hot summer evenings.  

I always think it is lovely to be able to offer a tasty non alcoholic drink at parties, and this is a really great option. However, if you do feel inclined, why not include a splash of your favourite gin? 

All measurements can vary to taste. 

Enjoy and good luck!
