There's nothing more thirst-quenching than a watermelon cooler.

  • 4 pounds red or yellow watermelon, plus more wedges for garnish
  • 1 cup freshly squeezed lime juice, 10 limes, plus wedges for garnish
  • 1 cup Ginger Syrup


  1. Remove rind and any loose seeds from watermelon. Place the flesh in a juice extractor, and process, extracting 3 cups watermelon juice.

  2. Transfer juice to a large pitcher. Add the remaining ingredients, and stir to combine. Fill pitcher with ice. Garnish with watermelon and lime wedges. Serve.

Cook's Notes

If you're using a food processor to juice the watermelon, remove the rind and seeds, and process flesh until liquid. Pass the puree through a fine strainer, and discard pulp.

    This is a summer favorite! I find the original a bit too intense. When I make this recipe, I increase the watermelon juice to 4 cups and decrease both the lime and ginger syrup to 3/4 cup each.
