  • 8 cups cubed watermelon (about 1 baby watermelon)
  • 3 cups hulled strawberries
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 10-12 fresh mint leaves
  • 2 cups chilled club soda or sparkling wine


  • Combine watermelon and strawberries in a blender and puree until no chunks remain. 
  • Place a fine mesh sieve over a wide-mouthed pitcher and, in batches, slowly pour the watermelon mixture through to strain. To speed up the process, use a pestle or some other utensil to help push the mixture through the sieve more quickly. It took me about 4 sieve-fuls to get through the entire batch of juice from the blender.
  • Remove sieve from pitcher and add lime juice and mint leaves. Stir to combine and refrigerate for at least a half hour. Add chilled club soda or sparkling wine right before serving. Serve over ice or neat, up to you!
