Watermelon Mint Cooler
- 2 cups water
- 1 cup sugar
- 6-8 mint leaves
- 5 cups watermelon chopped and chilled
- 1/3 cup fresh lime juice
- In a pan, bring water to boil; add sugar. Cook until sugar is dissolved, toss in mint and remove from heat. Allow to rest for 1 hour. Refrigerate until cold. Do not remove mint.
- Chop watermelon and refrigerate until chilled.
- Add all ingredients to a blender (including mint). Blend 45 seconds. Serve immediately.
Notes: While this recipe is assembled at the last minute, ingredients must be chilled in advance. It’s best to make mint syrup and chop watermelon in the morning or a day ahead. Watermelon separates, so the drink can’t be made ahead of time. If using a pitcher, serve with a large spoon so guests can stir before pouring.
