Watermelon Lemonade is delicious! We wanted to try our hand at making some. It’s hard to find real fresh-squeezed lemonade anywhere now a days and that extra kick of watermelon is such a great addition. In our opinion it’s the perfect summer drink.
5 lemons (makes 1 cup fresh-squeezed lemon juice when squeezed)
4 cups fresh seedless watermelon drained puree (we blended a quarter of a whole watermelon and then strained through a coarse strainer to get 4 cups of juice)
1/2 cup simple syrup (mix 1/2 cup sugar with 1/2 cup of hot water in small bowl until dissolved)
3 cups cold water
Stir together 1 cup fresh-squeezed lemon juice, 4 cups watermelon puree, 1/2 cup simple syrup and 3 cups cold water. Serve over ice.
Makes enough to fill a pitcher.
