Summertime is my favorite time of year. The beach, the sun & lemonade make for a perfect summer. Last year while attending the Taste of LA, I was introduced to the most delicious beverage, Watermelon Lemonade. I will never forget it because I stood in line about 5 times to taste it.
Watermelon Lemonade has instantly become my families favorite beverage. It’s a creative and refreshing beverage with a twist to the standard lemonade recipe. The watermelon is also naturally sweet which helps reduce the amount of sugar required for the recipe. The beverage is also a conversation starter!
I used a Breville Juice Fountain duo to make the delicious beverage at home. I’m in love with this Home Tech gadget! If you do not have a juicer you can also use a blender to puree the fruit. For this recipe I will use a blender.

Place the watermelon into a blender. Cover, and puree until smooth. Strain through a fine mesh sieve. Place the lemons into a blender. Cover and puree until smooth. Stir in 3 cups of cold wate, the lemon juice and stir. Add remaining water and sugar. Divide the ice into 12 glasses, and then top with the lemonade. Gently stir before serving.
