The most unusual drink recipe ever

“Red for Ferrari, for passion and for gazpacho. There’s only 3 minutes left for the big race and I say… Vamos Alonso! What a beautiful day today! What do I crave, when summer gets closer? A good vacation, for example a cruise on the Mediterranean Sea; I also crave good food and wine without having to prepare it myself in the heat of the kitchen. And, I also long for this unique and revitalising gazpacho drink!” ~ Spanish Recipes by Nuria

Watermelon and tomato gazpacho shots

Firstly, for those of you from different parts of the world that are not familiar with gazpacho, let’s quickly explain. Gazpacho is a summer favourite in Spain, and is typically a cold soup made from raw vegetables with a tomato base.

There’s no real cooking involved except for the mussels. Which takes what? 5 Minutes! That’s nothing! You only need to remove some seeds, peels, and chop all of the ingredients into smaller pieces. Then blend the watermelon and tomato together until you get a fine texture, and add the remainder of the ingredients on top. Easy, isn’t it?
