Watermelon juice is very refreshing and rejuvenating on hot summer days. Sometimes, the watermelons aren’t as sweet as you would like them to be. Adding honey does the trick. Needless to say, honey is a much healthier alternative to sugar. The earthy and unassuming flavor of honey pairs well with the fruity notes of the watermelon and the citrusy tang of lemons. The black pepper lends a nice zing to the juice. Its after taste feels like the final trill of the violin virtuoso when the entire orchestra goes silent. This sugar-free watermelon juice is an ultimate way to reduce heat in the body and quench your thirst.

adding ice instead of water

The watermelon juice is way too strong to be had just like that. It needs to be thinned down a bit. Chilled water is what first comes to the mind. However, the juice tastes much better with lots of ice than it does with water. Fill up half of your glass or mason jar with ice and pour the juice over it. Sit back, relax and enjoy this drink on a hot summer afternoon with your family.

      Hi Michelle. Yes, you can totally skip honey if you don’t like it. You may add sugar instead or skip that too if the watermelon is sweet enough to balance the sourness of lemon. 🙂
