Watermelon lemonade? Why not put the two together into one fabulous drink? Ever since I made watermelon sweet tea a few years ago, I have been infatuated with adding watermelon to everything. This year I am all about the lemonade so I figured why not? I know you will love it as well. So be sure to give it a try the first chance that you get!
Watermelon Lemonade Recipe
- Watermelon (just make sure it is good and ripe)
- Lemonade (I like Simply Lemonade or my homemade lemonade for one)
- Lemons (optional)
Start by cutting up some watermelon into cubes. Run those cubes through a food processor until they are basically liquid. Run that liquid through a fine mesh strainer to remove most of the pulp. Fill each glass about a quarter of the way with the watermelon liquid. Add ice to the top of the glass. Fill the remainder of the glass with lemonade. Finally garnish your glass with a slice of lemon if desired. Want more watermelon flavor? Add more juice! Want more lemonade flavor? Add less watermelon! This recipe can be customized to your taste which is absolutely the best part.
You will love sipping on a tall glass of watermelon lemonade this summer. The sweet and tart taste is perfect for long summer days. Make up a few glasses for your family today. They will love this twist on a classic. Watermelon just screams summer right? So this recipe screams summer as well!
