Equipment

  • Blender

Ingredients

  • 1 cup warm water
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 4 cups chopped seedless watermelon
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice you can add more if you desire
  • 2 cups cold water
  • Lemon and mint to garnish optional

Instructions

  • Dissolve 1/2 cup of sugar in 1 cup of warm water in a pitcher, and stick in the fridge.
  • Coarsely chop watermelon until you get 4 cups.
  • Place watermelon in a blender and blend until it is liquid.
  • Add in lemon juice, and blend again.
  • Place watermelon lemon mixture in the pitcher with sugar water and add 2 more cups of cold water.
  • Mix, place back in the fridge until you are ready to drink it and mix before drinking, or just throw in some ice cubes and enjoy! Yummm!

Notes

  • If you don't like pulp, feel free to use a strainer to strain it out before adding the lemon juice.
  • If you are in a hurry to make this, you could dissolve the sugar in less water and then add a few ice cubs. Or for a slightly faster way, you can pop it in the freezer for 15 minutes or so.
  • For the best flavor, use freshly squeezed lemon juice.
