Watermelon-Cucumber-Mint Juice

It's summertime, and that means eating fruits that I don't normally get to eat. My most recent experiment was watermelon-cucumber juice. I used about 1/2 a cucumber and 2 fist-sized chunks of watermelon.  Before I poured it into my glass, I muddled a few leaves of fresh mint into the bottom. I finished it off with about a tablespoon of fresh squeezed lime juice. My first impression of the juice was just so-so, but after I poured it over ice, it was amazing. I guess this is one that really needs to be chilled.
I think that next time, I will add more mint, or maybe even run the mint through the juicer.

Do you have a favorite summer juice combo?
