Watermelon Lemonade

Watermelon Lemonade. While the concept is so simple, I feel like we don't see this option enough. It's summertime, the official season of lemonade, yet we almost only ever see the classic lemon rendition, but what about all of the other flavors in the world? Peach, blueberry, and today's twist, watermelon all come to mind when I think of flavored lemonade. So today I'm bringing you my simple no-fuss version, feel free to serve as is, or spiked with a little vodka when you're feeling extra dangerous! Cheers.

Watermelon Lemonade

  • 4 lemons, juiced
  • 3 cups watermelon juice (I used my juicer, or you can use your blender and then pour the mixture through a fine mesh sieve)
  • 1/3 cup find granulated sugar
  • 2 cups water
  • ice
  • fresh mint leaves for garnish

In a large pitcher, mix together the lemon juice, watermelon juice, sugar and water. Stir, allowing the sugar to dissolve into the liquid.

Fill glassware with ice and top with lemonade. Garnish with mint leaves.
