Watermelon Juice


Summer just isn’t summer without watermelon. I love the stuff. This summer, I’ve enjoyed it off the rind, in¬†popsicles, and in salads. Next, I wanted to make a watermelon drink. And so, I present my Watermelon Juice. (This drink is inspired by a recipe I came across when looking for some watermelon beverage ideas.)

What you’ll need:

  • 2 cups of cubed watermelon
  • juice from half a lemon or a lime
  • 1 tsp of honey —¬†summer is a great time to buy honey from your local farmers’ market
  • 6-8 ice cubes
  • seltzer (optional)
  • basil

What you’ll do:

  1. In a blender, combine watermelon and lemon juice. Blend.
  2. Add honey and blend.
  3. Add ice cubes and blend a little more.
  4. Pour into glasses. If desired, add 1-2 tablespoons of seltzer into each glass for a sparkling drink.
  5. Top each glass with a sprig of basil.
