The second best thing I like doing with watermelon — other than eating it — is drinking it. What I love most about watermelon beverages is that you don’t waste much of the melon to make it. You can also use a less-than-perfect or overripe watermelon without sacrificing the flavor.
Watermelon goes a long way, too. One average-sized watermelon can serve up to three dozen people. Or, if you’re like me, it serves one person!
