Steps

  1. In a blender, purée 3 cups of the watermelon along with the mint and sugar. Add the remaining 3 cups watermelon and purée until the mixture is smooth.

Note

Culinate editor's notes: Try replacing the watermelon with 3 to 4 cups of tea made with steeped hibiscus (jamaica) flowers. Use the same amount of mint and sugar, but steep the fresh mint along with the hibiscus. Read more about hydration in Marissa Lippert's "Hydration and health."
