Looking for the perfect summer drink? Look no further! In this juice recipe we infuse mint and lime to balance out the sweetness of the watermelon, making it a crushable favorite. It is easy to make with your home juicer or add it to your juice bar menu. While it’s amazing as a hydrating juice, it is also very versatile and can be used a number of creative ways, even as a cold pressed cocktail base. Just add vodka, or for a mojito add rum, and for a margarita, add tequila.
