Ahhhh…. on those hot summer days, imagine lying back relaxing by the lake or pool, the sun streaming down and the soft summer breeze on your face, with a cool refreshing drink in your hand…. Watermenonade – a nice twist on lemonade with the addition of watermelon.
- 1/2 small watermelon cubed (about 4 cups)
- 5 lemons (about 1 cup juice)
- 4 cups cold water or more
- 3/4 cup organic sugar
- 1/4 cup maple flakes or maple sugar
- 1 tray of ice cubes
Add watermelon to a high-powered blender and pulse until well pureed. Strain through a mesh strainer (optional) and pour the juice into a pitcher. Juice the lemons (about 1 cup) and add to pitcher along with water. Add sugar to desired sweetness. Store in refrigerator or serve immediately over ice and garnish with slice of lemon. Enjoy!
