Watermelon Lemonade

I can not even begin to explain how instantly obsessed I became with this drink! (Yes, I’m going back to the store for more lemons to make it again tonight.) It’s just the right combo of sweet and tart, and just so refreshing you’ll have a hard time not finishing your glass in all of 30 seconds – trust me! You will not be disappointed!

I would recommend making a double batch for any more than 2 people – we finished this serving size off no problem with 1 1/2 glasses each.

Watermelon Lemonade served with a Tuna Salad Cucumber Boat and Tzatziki Dip. A perfect summer meal!


Ingredients:

1/2 c. fresh-squeezed lemon, juice and pulp (about 3-5 lemons)
1/2 c. simple syrup
4 c. seedless watermelon
Ice for serving

Directions:

1. Using a juice reamer, juice lemons. Keep as much as the pulp as possible, but remove any seeds.
2. Add lemon juice and simple syrup to blender. (See link above or my Cold-Brewed Hibiscus Tea post for directions on simple syrup.)
3. Chop watermelon and add roughly 4 cups to blend. Blend together until pureed.
4. Pour over ice and enjoy!
