Warm temps mean extra hydration and, honestly, there’s not a more fun way to hydrate than with watermelon. Whether you crack one open and make a mess or find fun ways to use it like in our list below, we’re big fans of eating this vitamin-rich melon in all it’s forms.

Pressed Juicery’s Watermelon Mint is back for the summer, this time with a citrusy twist. In this sweltering heat (and strangely muggy weather – what’s up, L.A?), we can’t get enough of Watermelon Lemon Mint to help cool us down: the bright hint of lemon and refreshing mint kick is pure summer in a bottle. With watermelon being 92% water and packed with potassium and plenty of vitamins including Vitamin A, B6 and C, it is considered one of the top fruits to eat to get rehydrated. Here are five genius ideas for using watermelon juice all summer long…

The Cocktail
