Watermelon Lemonade Recipe

Summertime is my favorite time of year.  The beach, the sun & lemonade make for a perfect summer.  Last year while attending the Taste of LA,  I was introduced to the most delicious beverage, Watermelon Lemonade.  I will never forget it because I stood in line about 5 times to taste it.

Watermelon Lemonade has instantly become my families favorite beverage.    It’s a creative and refreshing beverage with a twist to the standard lemonade recipe.  The watermelon is also naturally sweet  which helps reduce the amount of sugar required for the recipe.   The beverage is also a conversation starter!

I used a Breville Juice Fountain duo to make the delicious beverage at home.  I’m in love with this Home Tech gadget!  If you do not have a juicer you can also use a blender to puree the fruit.  For this recipe I will use a blender.

Do you have a creative lemonade recipe?  What is your favorite ingredient?

Watermelon Lemonade

Ingredients

1 cup white sugar
1 cup water
8 cups cubed seedless watermelon (from about 1/2 medium sized watermelon)
6 cups cold water
1 cup fresh lemon juice (6 -8 lemons)
6 cups ice cubes

Directions

Place the watermelon into a blender. Cover, and puree until smooth. Strain through a fine mesh sieve. Place the lemons into a blender. Cover and puree until smooth.  Stir in 3 cups of cold wate, the lemon juice and stir.  Add remaining water and sugar. Divide the ice into 12 glasses, and then top with the lemonade. Gently stir before serving.

Buen Provecho!
