Watermelon Lemonade for Cinco De Mayo | Kim Byers, TheCelebrationShoppe.com

Ingredients

  • 8 cups seedless watermelon (will take most of a five pound watermelon), cut into small cubes
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh lemon juice (about 8 lemons)
  • 3 1/2 cups water
  • 1 cup granulated white sugar
  • garnish – watermelon cubes or small cookie cutter flowers (like me) plus lemon wheels

Yields 8 Servings

Directions

  1. Blend watermelon and lemon juice in food processor or blender until smooth. Strain the mixture through a wire sieve to remove any seeds, pulp or foam.
  2. Transfer to a glass pitcher.
  3. Bring 3 1/2 cups water and sugar to boil in medium saucepan over high heat, stirring until sugar dissolves.
  4. Add mixture to pitcher with watermelon and lemon juice.
  5. Refrigerate until cold.
