Make the most of summer watermelon with this cool, tangy refresher.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups watermelon, peeled and cubed
  • ½ teaspoon grated fresh ginger
  • Ice cubes
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons lemongrass simple syrup (using 2 lemongrass stalks)

Directions

Run the watermelon and ginger through a juice press. Pour the juice into a glass filled with ice and add the lime juice and lemongrass syrup. Stir and serve.

You can also make this juice in a blender; it will be thicker but will taste just as good!

Watermelon Shopping Tip

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

Watermelon Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
