On our latest cruise on the Disney Dream, the crew had set up a drink station where you board the ship in Nassau and Castaway Cay. I was really impressed by the pineapple watermelon water, so I decided to make some at home.
This recipe couldn't get any easier. I put watermelon and pineapple in a glass carafe, and filled it with water. I purchased fresh pineapple and seedless watermelon chunks from The Fresh Market, so I didn't even need to cut up the fruit.
After a couple of hours in the refrigerator, my pineapple watermelon water was ready to drink. It has such a nice subtle flavor, and I love that it gets my daughter Emma excited about drinking water. We don't drink juice or soda, so this is a nice change of pace in our house from plain water.
Pineapple Watermelon Water
Fresh pineapple -- cut into chunks
Watermelon -- seeds removed and cut into cubes
Place pineapple and watermelon in a large pitcher, and fill with water. Place in the refrigerator for a few hours before drinking.
As you drink your pineapple watermelon water, continue to fill your pitcher with water for 3 or 4 days, until the fruit begins to lose its flavor. I considered buying an infusion pitcher, but my glass carafe works just fine for this recipe. Occasionally, a piece of fruit ends up in our drinks, but no one is complaining.
We also love Watermelon Basil Water, but this recipe involves much more work. You can view it here.
