  • Lemonade and watermelon are two staples of summer. Both are cold and refreshing, whether you're playing outside in the grass or sunbathing at the beach. Lemonade and watermelon can also bring you back to your childhood. It's reminiscent of simpler days—playing outside for hours with neighborhood friends, setting up lemonade stands, or having a watermelon seed spitting contest with your siblings and cousins.

    One of the wonderful things about lemons is that they're versatile and can easily combine with other flavors. This recipe combines lemonade and watermelon into one delicious drink. With this recipe, your child's lemonade stand could be the talk of the neighborhood! Or share it with some friends in a backyard BBQ and have everybody asking for your recipe.

  • Watermelon Lemonade

    1/2 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice (about 3 lemons)
    1/2 cup sugar
    4 cups seedless watermelon, cubed
    2 cups water + 1 cup for simple syrup
    Lemon wedges or mint for garnish

    Create a simple syrup by dissolving the sugar in 1 cup of water on the stove. Heat and stir over medium heat until the sugar is completely dissolved into water and it has a slightly thicker consistency.

    Cut the watermelon into approximately one inch cubes. Place the cubed watermelon in a blender and blend until it's pureed.

    Add the lemon juice into the blender and blend again until well combined.

    In a pitcher, combine the lemon and watermelon mixture with an additional 2 cups of water. Slowly mix in the simple syrup until it reaches your desired sweetness.

    Chill in the fridge until ready to enjoy.

    Enjoy over ice and garnished with a bit of lemon wedge and mint (optional).
