Test Kitchen Tip

Ripe, juicy melon is easy to crush with a masher. But if the melon is less ripe and firmer, use a pastry blender.


Combine watermelon, bourbon, torn mint, sugar, and lime juice in a bowl; let stand 5 minutes. Mash melon with a potato masher to release juice from the watermelon and muddle the mint.

Press mixture through a fine-mesh sieve into a pitcher; discard solids. Fill 4 tumblers with crushed ice, then top with watermelon mixture.

Garnish juleps with mint sprigs.
