How to Make Watermelon Juice
Alton Brown's kitchen hack on how to make watermelon juice is too easy:
1. Cut a hole in one end of a watermelon - use a cookie cutter to set the shape in the rind and cut out circle of rind with sharp knife.
2. Insert a stick blender into the watermelon and get blending, being sure to move the blender around sufficiently to liquefy all the interior flesh, which should only take a couple of minutes.
3. Once liquefied strain the liquid to remove the seeds and pulp into a large vessel, and enjoy. If you can't wait, just get extra long straws at the ready and slurp away direct from the watermelon.
Brown turns his watermelon juice into campari ice cubes, but you could always make a refreshing summer drink by try turning it into a watermelon smoothie, get the recipe here.
