How to make Watermelon Lemonade
This is a very easy and healthy beverage that can be made in a short while during or after a hot and long day.
The watermelon lemonade is a very cold and refreshing drink that can also be tweaked into an adult cocktail by adding a little vodka.
Boiling / Freezing
½ cup white sugar
½ cup of water
4 cups cubed watermelon
3 cups cold water
½ cup fresh lemon juice
6 cups of ice cubes
- Place the watermelon into a blender. Cover, and puree until smooth. Strain through a fine-mesh sieve.
2. Bring sugar and 1/2 cup water to a boil in a saucepan over medium-high heat until sugar dissolves, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in 3 cups of cold water and lemon juice.
3. Divide the ice into 12 glasses, and scoop 2 to 3 tablespoons of watermelon puree over the ice, then top with the lemonade.
Gently stir before serving.Tags: Beverages Lemonade Watermelon
