We are a family of watermelon lovers and usually have some in the fridge throughout the summer. Whenever we have friends over for a barbecue, as is often the case for Memorial Day and other summer Holidays, we make sure to have a big bowl of it to snack on. The kids, in particular dive in, but it’s popular with everyone, being so refreshing and tasty.
I’ve used watermelon in a deliciously refreshing fruit, herb and feta Israeli couscous salad before, and I can’t wait to try some watermelon strawberry and chicken salad and watermelon gazpacho as well. However I’ve not used it in drinks before making this Watermelon Mint Lemonade.
I made a papaya lemonade a while back that we loved, and decided it was about time to try another fruit lemonade. Watermelon has such a wonderful freshness, as well as a great color, that it’s perfect for making a bright, light lemonade. We all immediately loved this Watermelon Mint Lemonade, and I know it’s going to be a regular on our table over the summer.
