Remember when I shared all those delicious summer lemonades recipes a few weeks ago? Well, I have decided that this is the year for me to try a few homemade lemonades! I made a Lime Mint Freeze last month and wow, was it refreshing.
So, let’s get ready for some SERIOUS refreshing summer in a glass, when you taste this amazing Watermelon Lemonade!
There is nothing quite like making your very own homemade lemonade. Check out all about it below.
What mixes well with watermelon flavor?
Everything goes well with watermelon! Some of the best fruit pairings with watermelon are lemon, banana, strawberry, and tropical fruits such as mango and pineapple.
What ingredients do I need to make Watermelon Lemonade?
Who is in agreement with me? Summer fruit is the absolute best. Just look at those bright cherrfyl colors!
How do I make Watermelon Lemonade?
The first step to making watermelon lemonade is chopping all the watermelon. Make sure you have plenty of counter space for all the watermelon chopping you will be doing for this drink.
I only used a half watermelon when I made mine (so I only had half a pitcher of lemonade), however if you are wanting to make the full batch, you will need six cups of cubed watermelon. And if you have ever seen 6 cups of cubed watermelon… it takes up a ton of space, ha.
Once your watermelon is cubed, run it through a blender to puree. Pour your watermelon juice through a fine mesh stainer and set aside.
Next up is the lemons! I am a huge fan of this Citrus Squeeze. I use mine all the time when we are making guacamole (for the limes) or margaritas (also for limes). Believe me when I say your hand would be so tired if you squeeze all those lemons the old fashioned way!
Next in a large pitcher pour in water, sugar and the fresh squeezed lemon juice together. Keep whisking the liquid until the sugar dissolves completely.
Finally, add in the watermelon puree + ice + mint… and you are set!
- Cut and cube a full watermelon. Add to a blender and pulse until well pureed. There should be about 4 cups when done.
- Pour watermelon juice through a fine mesh stainer and into a bowl.
- In a large pitcher, whisk together water, lemon juice, and sugar until sugar has dissolved.
- Stir in pureed watermelon liquid. Add ice and mint for garnish.
- Make sure you have plenty of counter space for all the watermelon chopping portion of this drink. I used a half watermelon when I made mine (so I only had half a pitcher).
