This Fresh Watermelon Cucumber Mint Juice is absolutely refreshing. You'd be surprised at just how easy it is to make, using all natural and organic ingredients, in just under 30 minutes. It's certainly the best drink of the summer.
To start, combine the water and pure cane sugar (or honey) in a small pot and boil on medium-high heat, whisking until sugar fully dissolves.
Remove sugar mixture from heat and add mint leaves to hot mixture and let everything steep for about 20-25 minutes, covered with a pot cover.
Once sugar-mint mixture has fully infused in it's flavor, add it to the blender along with the sliced watermelons, cucumber, and blend for about 2 minutes, on low speed. **NOTE: Be sure to split mixture if blender gets too full to avoid a mess.**
Add in lemon juice and blender for another 30 seconds. Strain juice into your prepared pitcher or mason jars.
Chill juice in the refrigerator for about 2 hours or to serve immediately, add tons of ice to your prepared glass and top with a fresh mint leaf. Store any leftovers in the refrigerator.
ADJUSTMENTS: To make an entire pitcher of juice, multiply measurements of ingredients list by about 3 or 4 (x's) more, depending on size of pitcher.
STORAGE: Juice can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 3 days, for optimal freshness.
