Watermelon Cooler

Watermelon Cooler

My friend Christy was the first person to serve this beverage to me at one of her fabulous dinner parties. I tease her and tell her that it is her fault that I am addicted to this juicy, sweet beverage. 
When watermelons are in season you will almost always find one sitting on my counter, just waiting to be juiced. I used to make this in the summertime and carry it to the pool. I was always the most popular person when I arrived with this lovely concoction. You can make this kid-friendly or an adult beverage

  • 1 Fine Mesh Strainer
  • 1 Large Bowl
  • 1 Measuring cup


  • 1 Ripe Watermelon (peeled and cut into chunks you can use seedless or seeded. I personally find the seeded watermelon to be sweeter which is ideal for this drink.
  • Cucumber optional
  • Mint or Basil optional


  • Slice or cube the watermelon meat.
  • Add it seeds and all, to your blender and pulse until it is liquid.
  • Pour it all through a mesh strainer into a bowl or measuring cup.
  • Constantly move your spoon back and forth to disperse the pulp so that the juice can flow out through the bottom.
  • Discard the pulp and seeds that are left in the strainer and repeat, repeat, repeat until you have made all the juice you want.



There are so many variations for serving this refreshing Watermelon drink
