Watermelon Mint Lemonade

A super refreshing drink perfect for hot, sunny, summer days! One of my personal favourites as well.

Prep time: ~20 minutes
Serves: 10-12
Gluten-free

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 watermelon, cut into small chunks.
  • 1 large bunch mint.
  • 1 cup white sugar.
  • 250 ml water.
  • 1 pinch salt.
  • 250 ml lemon juice.
  • 2 liters cold water.
  • sprig of mint for garnish (optional)

Cooking Instructions:

First, we’re going to make a watermelon-mint syrup. Place the sugar, water, watermelon, and mint in a pot on high heat. Stir occasionally, until all of the sugar is dissolved and it comes to a boil.

Take it off the heat and remove the mint leaves. Allow to cool, then place the syrup and watermelon chunks in a blender and blend until smooth.

Take a large pitcher and pour the lemon juice in. Strain in the watermelon syrup to avoid any seeds getting in the lemonade. Add the cold water. You may want a little more or a little less water, depending on how strong you like your lemonade!

Stir the whole thing up, then serve over ice, garnished with mint if desired, and enjoy!
