2-inch piece of ginger root
chopped watermelon (from 1 large watermelon)
sprigs fresh mint, for serving
This juice blend was inspired by watermelon eaten on a hot L.A. day. The addition of lime and ginger brings tartness and a bit of heat to the cooling watermelon, and it’s topped with mint for an added refresher.
- Cut limes into halves, then using a citrus juicer or press, juice limes and mix with cold water.
- Peel ginger root with a spoon, then cut into thumb-size chunks. Grate ginger, then strain into pitcher with lime and cold water until ginger and lime pulp remain in strainer.
- In a blender, slowly add one cup at a time of watermelon until completely blended. Strain into ginger-lime mixture. Serve with a sprig of fresh mint.
