Ingredients:

  • 6 cups cubed seedless watermelon, chilled (2 lbs after peeling)*

  • 4 cups cold water

  • 3/4 cup fresh strained lemon juice, chilled

  • 2/3 cup sugar (more or less to taste)

  • Ice and fresh mint for serving

Directions:
Add watermelon to a blender and pulse until well pureed (there should be about four cups). Pour through a fine mesh strainer into a bowl. In a large pitcher, whisk together water, lemon juice and sugar until sugar has dissolved. Stir in the strained watermelon juice from your strained puree. Stir in ice and mint (or you can add ice and mint directly to individual cups and pour lemonade over). Store in refrigerator.

*If you don't have time to chill the ingredients, just use more ice in place of some of the water.

Serving size: 2-4 drinks
