AUTHOR NOTES

Watermelon juice is one of our favourite summer drinks to sip and enjoy after a long day cooped up inside. It’s naturally sweet, refreshing, and a cinch to make. Fresh mint, lime, and cucumber help brighten up the already happy and summery flavour of the melon, while adding some extra hydration and  juicy notes. This juice makes for a great festive cocktail paired with some gin or rum, is perfect as is over some crushed ice, or for something a little special try mixing it a splash of soda water for a naturally sweetened soda.
