I first shared this recipe on my other blog TheBigGiantFoodBasket in August of last year. It was so delicious that I decided to share it again here at 21 Rosemary Lane.
So 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 the lemon juice, 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.
