Watermelon-Mint Lemonade

Ingredients

  • 5 to 6 cups watermelon, cubed
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 sprigs mint
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice

Directions

  1. In a pot on high heat, bring sugar and water to a light boil until the sugar is completely dissolved and your mixture is clear. Turn off the fire, and throw in your sprigs of mint.
  2. Allow mint to steep for at least 15 minutes, then remove it from your simple syrup and discard. Cool for about 10 minutes.
  3. Pour cooled mint-infused syrup into your blender along with the watermelon. Blend until mixture is  is smooth and uniform.
  4. Strain mixture into a pitcher to get rid of the fruit bits.
  5. Add lemon juice to the pitcher, and stir.
  6. Serve immediately, over ice.
    ** Mini watermelon slices make a nice garnish, and are also very useful for stirring. And, if you leave them in your glass, they will soak up lemonade and be a tasty snack when you finish your drink.
