Rosemary Watermelon Juice

Rosemary Watermelon Juice.

As we head into summer and backyard BBQ’s, there’s a good chance we’ll find ourselves with half a watermelon taking up way too much space in the Frigidaire.  I did.  Water-melon.  Water.  Flavored water.  Do you see where I’m headed…

Rosemary Watermelon Juice

I took an average sized watermelon and cut half of it into glorious wedges.  Which were enjoyed by all.  The other half sat in my fridge for a few days until a decision was made.  We’re turning you into juice.  The rosemary idea came from Shelby.  Her new issue of Vegetarian Times had an article about pairing Watermelon & Rosemary.  I was sold.

This juice is super easy to make.  Cut the remaining half of a watermelon into chunks and blend until smooth.  Strain through a medium mesh sieve to remove some of the pulp.  Pour into a pitcher, add a sprig of fresh rosemary and allow to hang out in the fridge for a couple hours.  Delicious and so refreshing.

I infused the Watermelon Rosemary Juice with strawberries and kiwi (think sangria) to add another flavor dimension and took a jug full to the office to {Share the Love}.  They loved it.  I will never look at leftover watermelon as a burden again.  Just juice it up.
