Virgin Watermelon Cooler for Hot Days

Nothing beats the heat like a Virgin Watermelon Cooler with fresh lime juice. Cool yourself off with this hot weather treat…



  • 5 cups cubed seedless watermelon (about 1 1/2 pounds)
  • 1 large English cucumber, peeled and cut into chunks
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice (from 2 limes)
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • Ice
  • Cucumber slices, for garnish


  1. Step 1

    Set a large fine-mesh sieve over a large bowl or pitcher. In a food processor or blender, puree watermelon. Pour watermelon puree through sieve, pressing on solids with a rubber spatula (you should have about 2 cups juice). Puree English cucumber and pour through sieve into watermelon juice.

    In a small bowl or measuring cup, stir together lime juice and honey. Add to watermelon and cucumber juices. Adjust sweetness with more honey if desired. To serve, fill four glasses with ice and top each with cocktail. Garnish with cucumber slices.
