watermelon lemonade

Monday, July 23, 2012

A little bit sweet, a teeny bit sour and a whole lot delicious!  Kids love sipping on this refreshing summer drink!  Parents: you can easily turn this into a cocktail by adding your favorite spirit. 

To make ice cubes, place 1 seedless watermelon ball and 1 mint leaf into each of 36 ice cube tray holes.  Fill with water and freeze.

6 cups 1-inch seedless watermelon (from about a 5-pound melon)

1 bottle (10-ounce) Whole Foods 365 Everday Value® Organic Lemon Juice
6 cups water
¾ cup sugar
Crushed ice
Mint sprigs, for garnish

(1.)    Working in batches as necessary, puree watermelon and lemon juice in blender until smooth; transfer to a large container.
(2.)    Add water and sugar; stir until dissolved. 
(3.)    Pour over ice in tall glasses, garnish with mint sprig and watermelon icecubes or thin slices of watermelon, if desired, and serve.
