watermelon and mint juice / by Nate Everett


Here's a rare glimpse of my weekday food regimen. Despite what you see on Spice & Hutch, I eat healthy most of the time. I share recipes and photos for party food because I think it's wayyy more fun than the healthy stuff. I mean, let's face it: I would rather feast my eyes on salmon rillettes & brioche than a spinach salad. 

But I digress. If you're looking for a new kickstart to your day or a summery BBQ beverage, try my watermelon and mint juice. It's a crowd pleaser and super easy to make!


  • 1 large watermelon
  • 2 large handfuls fresh mint
  • 4 limes
  1. Cut the watermelon in half. Scoop out the filling with a spoon and place in a large bowl. Strip the mint leaves from their stems. Peel the limes.
  2. Run the ingredients through a juicer. I use a Breville and it's life-changing.
  3. Pour the juice into a glass pitcher and refrigerate for 1 hour.

If you make this recipe, hashtag a pic to #spiceandhutch and post to Instagram, Facebook and/or Twitter. I'd love to see your culinary creations!
