The Most Unique 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 for when summer gets closer? A good vacation… for example a cruise along the Mediterranean Sea; I also crave for good food and wine without having to prepare it myself in the heat of the kitchen, and I also long for a fresh and revitalising gazpacho!” ~ Spanish Recipes by Nuria

Watermelon and Tomatoe Gazpacho Shots

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

There’s no cooking involved except for the mussels; which takes what? 5 minutes? That’s nothing! You only need to remove seeds, peels, and cut all of the ingredients into smaller pieces. Then blend the watermelon and tomato until you get a fine texture and add the rest of ingredients on top… there you are! Easy, isn’t it?
