2tablespoonsgranulated sugarcan substitute honey or agave, see notes
mint leaves for garnish
Blend watermelon, lime juice, and water in a blender and blend until smooth. You may need to work in batches depending on the size of your blender.
Pour the juice through a fine mesh strainer into a large pitcher, discard any solids.
Stir in the sugar (may need to add more sugar or less depending on sweetness of your watermelon). Chill the drink until cold.
Stir to recombine before serving. Serve over crushed ice with a garnish of fresh mint leaves. This drink will keep in the fridge for up to 5 days.
You don't have to add the water to the drink. If you want a concentrated watermelon flavor then omit the water. If you have a very ripe, sweet, watermelon then you may not have to add any sweetener at all! Taste as you go for this recipe :)
