Watermelon Lemonade!

Now what do you get when you cross some bright tart lemons

with some sweet and cool watermelon?

Why you get watermelon lemonade of course!!!

Ingredients for this super cool and refreshing lemonade.

3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup water
1/2 cup of fresh squeezed lemon juice
2 cups cold water
4 cups of watermelon, cubed
lots of ice cubes

Heat 3/4 cup of water with the 3/4 cup of sugar, cook until sugar is completely dissolved in the water, about 3-5 minutes. Add the 2 cups of cold water and set aside.

Puree the watermelon in blender until smooth. Strain the liquid through strainer.  Fill glasses with ice and spoon about 3-4 teaspoons of watermelon on top of the ice. Pour the lemon mixture over the ice and serve. 

(If you want to enjoy this as a big girl drink add 2 oz. of vodka or a spiced rum to each glass.)

Makes approximately 6 cups.

  9. I find that when I scoop out a watermelon, there is a huge amount of liquid that accumulates. I save it in the refridgeratorfor drinks. Nothing is more refreshing. Bet I could use it in this lemonade. Sounds delicious
