Hence only the melons are added and pureed them thoroughly till they are in their liquid form. Once the fruit is pureed thoroughly, they can then strain the juice of any unbeaten pulp or seeds that can still remain with the liquid. Once the liquid is obtained separately in one bowl, they can then transfer a portion of them in the large glass jar.

That is, when 3 glasses of watermelon juice is taken, the juice of 1 lemon must be added (can vary between different regions, based on the size of the lemon. Hence add the juice of the lemon as much as desired based on personal taste), followed by a quarter cup of sugar and 2 mint leaves in the glass bowl. People can either add the cubes either beforehand or just before serving, though the most preferred choice would be to add them just before serving. They can also make add some chopped melons in the mixture before they serve them. On the whole, this is one of the most delicious and also the healthiest juice for the people to maintain the water levels in their body during the extreme summer climate.
