Cool Crisp Summer Drinks - Watermelon Lemonade

A twist on traditional lemonade: Stir in pureed watermelon. You can adjust the level of sweetness by experimenting with the amount of honey and lemon. 


1 1/2 lb. sliced seedless watermelon

Zest of 1 lemon

3/4 c. fresh lemon juice

1/2 c. mild honey (such as orange blossom)

1 lemon

blue berries


In the bowl of a food processor, place watermelon and process until very smooth. Strain through a coarse sieve set over a bowl, stirring to push through any pulp. Pour juice into a large pitcher. Add lemon zest.

In a bowl, whisk lemon juice and honey until honey dissolves; stir into watermelon juice. Stir in 1 1/2 cups cold water; cover and refrigerate until very cold. Serve over ice and garnish with lemon or lime slices and blue berries.

PRO TIP: Use a soda stream to carbonate the water for extra POW!
