Ingredients

Simple Syrup

  • 1 cup honey
  • 1 cup water
  • 4 sprigs fresh mint

Watermelon Lemonade

  • 4 cups watermelon, cubed
  • 1 cup fresh lemon juice (about 6 large lemons)
  • 3 cups cold water

Optional

  • ice
  • lemon wedges
  • fresh mint

Instructions

Honey Simple Syrup

  • Over medium heat, bring honey, water, and fresh mint to a boil, whisking occasionally. 
    Once the syrup has reached a boil, remove from heat and allow to cool to room temperature, about 30 minutes or so. 

Watermelon Lemonade

  • With a blender or food processor, puree watermelon and lemon juice together. Strain the mixture through a sieve to remove the pulp (if you do not mind pulp, you can skip this step).
    Pour the watermelon juice and lemon juice into a large pitcher.
    Remove mint from simple syrup, and pour the syrup into the pitcher.
    Add in 3 cups of water (this is to taste, so you can add more/less water until it reaches your desired flavor).
    Stir the mixture.
    Refrigerate until ready to serve.
    Serve with ice, lemon wedges, or fresh mint, if desired.
