Watermelon Lemonade

This summer is a really hot summer. It is hot just to be sitting on the couch. I am so ready for Fall. For now, a perfect heat relief is to drink a good glass of refreshing drink. Two weeks ago, my husband and I were out to a restaurant with some friends. I saw on the menu that they have watermelon lemonade. I tried it. It was refreshing and it was just what I want on a hot day. So, I came home and went online for watermelon lemonade. I found this recipe and I like it. I hope you will too.

Watermelon Lemonade (Adapted from smitten kitchen)

2 glasses of lemonade


–   2 cups of watermelon (diced)

–   ¾ cup cold water

–   ¼ cup fresh-squeezed lemon juice

–   4 – 5 tablespoons simple syrup (recipe followed)

–   ice cubes


  1. Put the watermelon cubes in a blender. Blend until smooth. Strain the liquid through a fine strainer to remove seeds and most of the pulps. Collect 1 cup of watermelon juice and mix with lemon juice and cold water in a medium jar. Taste and stir in the simple syrup. Pour the lemonade into serving glasses with few ice cubes. Serve and enjoy.


  1. The sweetness of the recipe depends on how sweet the watermelon is. Make sure to do a taste test before adding the simple syrup.
