How to Pick Ripe Watermelon
Choosing a ripe watermelon is essential to ensure a sweet and juicy eating experience. Here are some tips on how to pick the perfect ripe seedless watermelon:
- Look for a yellow spot: Check the underside of the watermelon for a creamy yellow spot. If it’s white or green, the watermelon is likely underripe.
- Check the surface: A ripe watermelon should have a dull surface, not shiny. Shiny skin indicates that it’s not yet ripe.
- Tap it: Give the watermelon a tap with your knuckles. A ripe watermelon will sound hollow, indicating that it’s full of water.
- Check the weight: A ripe watermelon should feel heavy for its size, indicating that it’s full of water and has matured properly.
- Look for uniformity: A ripe watermelon should have a uniform shape and size. Avoid ones with lumps or bumps, as they may not have matured properly.

- Simple Syrup; to add more sweetness (it’s optional). I prefer simple syrup rather than granulated sugar just to make sure it does not need to dissolve first

Mint leaves are used to infuse the watermelon lemonade with a refreshing and aromatic twist. Mint adds a cool and invigorating element to the drink.
