Watermelon Lemonade

Something New

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.

Watermelon Lemonade

Ingredients

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

Directions

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.
