How Do You Pick a Sweet Watermelon?
You’ll want to find a watermelon with large webbing (those brown scratch-like marks), an orange/brown spot on one end (not white), and a brown stem (not green)

The brown scratch-like marks that almost resemble a scar are from bees pollinating the watermelon flower. The bigger the webbing, the sweeter the watermelon
Tips and Tricks for making Watermelon Juice
- adjust the sweetness of your drink by adding honey or leaving it out altogether – I like it without the extra sweetness, but my husband loves the honey flavor
- another flavor you can adjust is the amount of lime added to your drink – I like adding a little extra lime, but my youngest likes it with the exact amount from the recipe
- make sure you use my tips above for picking out a sweet watermelon. No worries, if it’s not sweet enough – you can add honey to sweeten it up
- you can double the recipe for more drinks
- this drink keeps well in the refrigerator for 3-4 days
