Watermelon Mint Lemonade
Watermelon Mint Lemonade is the lemonade you NEED on hot summer days. Sweet watermelon, tart lemon, and a hint of mint will quench your thirst with a refreshing flavor and keep you cool all summer long!
Fine mesh strainer
- 4 cups watermelon cubes
- ½ cup lemon juice
- 3 cups water
- 6 tbsp sugar or a little more/less to taste
- mint for garnish
- ice to serve
Put 4 cups watermelon cubes in a blender and blend until smooth.
Add ½ cup lemon juice, 3 cups water, and 6 tablespoons sugar, and blend so they are well mixed.
Pour through a fine mesh strainer to hold back excess pulp and seeds.
Chill until needed, then serve over ice, garnished with some mint.
- Adjust the amount of sugar to your taste, and depending on how sweet your watermelon is.
- You can use fresh or bottled lemon juice, though I always recommend using fresh. Check the post for detailed instructions on how to peel and juice a lemon.
- Tip: Use seedless watermelon!
