Watermelon Mint Juice

Hello my Zester’s,

Kristi here, reporting from an unusually hot week in San Luis Obispo. For this week’s post I have decided to create a nice simple summer juice to help cool off and stay hydrated! I will warn you from the get go this recipe calls for a juicer!

First I cut the watermelon slices into big chunks to fit into my juicer, once all of my fruit was cut I then juiced the slices individually. Watermelon as you could have guessed juices incredibly well and quickly so make sure you have enough room in your containers to catch the juice. Once all of my watermelon was juiced I poured it into the pitcher and added the mint and water. Watermelon juice is extremely sweet so personally I like to water it down but it’s up to you. Finally I cut up a lemon for garnish and put the pitcher in the fridge. Please note that the longer you leave the mixture the faster it will separate so I recommend stirring frequently to not only keep the juice mixed but to help with the infusion process of the mint. Below are some of the pictures of my process.

To make this an adult beverage I recommend using gin or tequila in your desired amount.

VIOLA! Have a great weekend!

XOXO,

Kristi
