I think I've found my summer drink! Homemade lemonade has always been a favorite but watermelon lemonade could take the top spot for deliciousness. Here is a recipe I found on Smitten Kitchen http://smittenkitchen.com. For an alcoholic version try adding a splash of Vodka!
Makes enough to fill two glasses with ice cubes; quadruple it to fill a pitcher.
1/4 cup (2 ounces) fresh-squeezed lemon juice
1/2 cup (4 ounces) fresh watermelon puree, strained through a coarse strainer to remove seeds
3 tablespoons (1 1/2 ounces) simple syrup
3/4 cup (6 ounces) cold water
Stir it all together and serve over ice. Garnish it with a thin watermelon or lemon wedge, if you're feeling fancy.
