Watermelon Lemonade

Yum
Hot weather requires a lot of refreshing and cooling beverages.  Watermelons and lemons are the perfect flavors for summer time drinks.  If it's scorching out, just mix a batch of this Watermelon Lemonade and you can sit back and cool off. 

The kids had a great time making this drink with me and when they finished juicing and mixing it all up they drank it with happy smiles. Now that's what I call making some great summer time memories. :)



Ingredients:
5-6 cups cut watermelon chunks (no rind)
1 cup lemon juice
water as needed-(about 3-4 cups)
simple syrup from recipe below as needed to sweeten
ice as needed
optional ingredients:  mint

Simple syrup:
1 cup sugar
1 cup water
Heat both ingredients and bring to a boil.  Stir until sugar is dissolved. 


Directions:
 
 Blend watermelon until smooth. Strain all pulp out of watermelon.  Mix watermelon juice with lemon juice, water and simple syrup. Adjust to taste.  Serve with ice.  Enjoy.

  2. Ahhh, there's my problem. When I make watermelonade I never remember to strain it so I get all these floaters that sink to the bottom, making it look kinda gross. Yours is perfect. Going to give this a try for sure.
