Expert Tips

  • To make about 1 cup of watermelon juice, place about 5 cups of fresh watermelon cubes in a blender. Cover; blend on high speed until pureed. Strain to remove seeds.
  • Simple syrup can be purchased. Or to make your own, heat equal parts sugar and water to boiling in a small saucepan; boil and stir until sugar is dissolved. Cool before using.
