Classic lemonade meets sweet and refreshing in this Watermelon Lemonade Recipe. It’s the perfect summertime drink, great for backyard BBQs or those hot, lazy summer days.
My kids love watermelon and it’s pretty much a summer staple at our house. I almost always have some cut up and in the fridge for the kids to snack on, and recently I had a lot of watermelon leftover after making a DIY Watermelon Vase for our Memorial Day BBQ. Since we already had some cut up I decided to turn it into a fresh and tangy drink to quench our thirst on these hot Texas summer days. It is absolutely the most refreshing drink and perfect for sipping on the front porch while I watch the kids play.
Even my kids loved it and they even suggested we make it so they can sell it at their lemonade stand. What do you think, would you buy a cup of watermelon lemonade from a bunch of cute kids at their lemonade stand?!
If you’ve never made your own fresh squeezed lemonade it’s really simple and adding the watermelon is just one more simple step. All you do is puree watermelon in the blender, add fresh squeezed lemon juice and blend until nice and smooth. Add it to a large pitcher with some sugar, cold water and a few fresh mint sprigs and stir.
