Watermelon Juice

Our friends from Holy Scrap Hot Springs came to town this weekend for the Re:Make It! Festival at the Santa Fe Complex. We had a great time, and they came bearing gifts, including this experimental watermelon from an undisclosed research facility. The thing was huge, and after having maybe a third of it for dinner and breakfast, we decided to turn the rest into a watermelon agua fresca.

Several months ago I dumpstered a commercial juicer, worth probably 1K. We're planning to sell it, and we haven't really used it much since I got it. We cut the watermelon into chunks and tossed it into the juicer, and in no time we had a yield of about 1/2 gallon of juice. We mixed this with some limeade and topped it off with water, and the result is a wonderfully refreshing drink. It would probably taste great with a little kick added as well.
