Watermelon Juice with Fleur de Sel

*This simple, refreshing recipe was given to us by White House Executive Pastry Chef Bill Yosses back when he was living in New York. The watermelon juice is easy to make with just a blender, and the addition of a little fleur de sel adds a salty and sophisticated finish to this sweet drink.

What to buy: Fleur de sel is a hand-harvested sea salt that’s moister than other salts and has a distinct mineral taste. It can be found at gourmet grocery stores.

Instructions

  1. 1Set a fine-mesh strainer over a large bowl and set it aside.
  2. 2Place the watermelon in a blender and blend until liquified, about 1 minute. Pour through the strainer into the bowl and scrape a rubber spatula against the inside surface of the strainer to push the juice through until only pulp remains. Discard the pulp. (You should have about 3 cups of juice.)
  3. 3Refrigerate until chilled, about 1 1/2 hours. Add the fleur de sel, stir, and serve.
