    I'm just lovin' my watermelon juice. I made some on the weekend and came across a good idea. I've been noticing that the juice separates within minutes, taking on an almost tequila-sunrise appearance. I'd been stirring it every time I poured a glass, but found it would still separate in a relatively short time in the glass. I started bottling it as I made it, in mickey-size bottles. It makes it easy to pre-shake when I open it, and agitate it as needed to keep it at it's best. Looks strange when it's been sitting in the fridge.....



    ....but it really comes together when it's shaken.....



    I loves me some watermelon juice. This is delicious!

    Cool--maybe it works as a mix as well?

    Watermelon juice makes a great mix with Southern Comfort....It almost goes down a little too easy, lol. You forget that, put it down like soft drinks, and it catches up with you. After a couple of experiences like that, I'm very careful using it as mix.

    If you follow the advice of hard-core juicers, they'll tell you to only make what you're going to drink right away. I find that less than practical, so I use a couple of small melons or a half a full-size melon which makes something between one and two liters, and then drink it over a day or two. Online info suggests that you can keep all the benefits of freshness up to five days by canning it. I'm assuming the same sort of results from bottling it. I'd like to try freezing it, but I suspect that even if it tasted great, some of the organic benefits would be lost if it was frozen any length of time.

    Anyway, this is great stuff! Posting this has me wanting some right now. I'll probably do a batch after work tomorrow afternoon.
