To make watermelon juice, add watermelon chunks to an upright blender, purée until liquefied and then strain through a fine-mesh sieve to remove all solids. (Compost the pulp.)
Every 3 pounds of watermelon (before the rind is removed) usually yields between 3½ to 4 cups of juice, after straining.
For watermelon water, use 1 part watermelon juice for every 6 parts water.
