CURTIS STONE: With its bold, powerful stance, this GMC Terrain is sure going to turn some heads. But I’ve got a few ways for you to make an impression as well. I’m Curtis Stone, and welcome to my next GMC Trade Secret, which is all about beverages on the beach.
I got this idea from a guy walking up the beach in a Greek island. He had a donkey full of watermelons, and he would walk up and make people drinks out of the watermelon, some vodka and a little bit of orange juice and whatever else he had back there. So I’m going to show you how to make – I’m not going to use alcohol in mine, but a great refreshing drink next time you’re on the beach.
What you do is you take your watermelon, cut the top off it. And I’m just going to cut the bottom off just a tiny bit, just so it stands up straight for me. Then what I’m going to do is scoop out all of the flesh of the watermelon just like this. So, just using your spoon, go around the watermelon and take some of that beautiful fruit out. And I’m just popping it into a bowl over there with a strainer.
Okay, of course, the name watermelon means that there’s a lot of juice, a lot of water. So you can just keep on scooping it out. Now, you don’t want to go all the way through, but you want to get pretty close. Then you pour out the excess juice and then get a couple of other flavors. So I’ve got some mint, so I’m going to go for the mint here and just roughly chop some of that. So we get some of the minty flavor without all the big pieces of mint. And I’m going to pop that in as well.
Okay, and then some of the lime. I’m just going to squeeze some of that juice, because a watermelon is so, so sweet. And the other ingredient that I’m going to use is orange juice. So, of course, that’s very sweet as well. So the lime’s there just to sort of balance it out a little bit. So I’m just going to squeeze that in.
The next thing is I take a potato masher. Now, I know this is a little bit of an unconventional recipe, but you want to just squash all of the juice straight out of the fruit. Okay, once you’ve done that and broken up all those little pieces of watermelon, the next job is to squash the juice through. So I’ve got a ladle here and I’m just going to squeeze that through and just squash through some of that juice. Okay, so once you’ve got that done, you’re good to go.
So you pick up your strainer, take all that watermelon juice and pour it straight on back in. Delicious. Mix it with a little bit of freshly squeezed orange juice and, of course, some ice to keep it nice and cold. And then what’s going to happen is the watermelon itself is going to act as a natural insulator, so it’s going to keep your drink really nice and cold.
Put your lid back on. Just twist it around so it’s in the same spot. And then here I’ve got an apple corer, so I’m just going to punch that through. I think the old Greek guy used a screwdriver. I’m going to get a couple of straws. It’s the perfect drink to share with someone if you’re sitting on the beach. Pop those in, and there you go.
