Watermelon-Cucumber Cooler (aka Hangover Helper)

Watermelon Juice

I haven’t been on a bender since well before I had kids. But sometimes I’ll get “over served” at an event, or a new cocktail might leave me a bit more bleary-eyed than I’d like.

  • 2 cups cubed watermelon

  • 2 tablespoons fresh line juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • Combine the watermelon, cucumber, lime juice, salt, and mint in a blender and blend until smooth.
  • Strain the mixture through a fine-mesh sieve, pressing to release all the liquid.
  • Into a tall glass filled with ice, pour 1/2 cup of the watermelon mixture and top with 1/2 cup or more of the sparkling water. Stir in agave to taste, if using.
  • Slip slowly until you've recovered. Have another glass if you need it. Store any remaining cooler covered in the refrigerator for up to 1 day. Stir well before drinking.
