I posted this on Instagram last week and have been surprised by its popularity. The color is entrancing and the taste is like pure summer. Can summer have a flavor? If so—this Watermelon Cooler is it.
Picking out a good watermelon is like hoping you get the gooey caramel-filled truffle in a box of chocolates. They all look the same. And sometimes you end up with the marzipan filling.
And that was the case with this watermelon. It wasn’t sweet and juicy, but a bit mealy. Turns out, that is the best kind of watermelon for juicing.
