Watermelon Lemonade @livligahome

Holidays are fun times to add something new to your menu. It is also a great time to enjoy using the best the season has to offer in its fruits and vegetables. It is an easy way to make your table look appealing and taste delicious.

For this 4th of July I plan on serving a watermelon lemonade. Watermelon is a summertime staple in our house. And now that there are smaller, seedless versions it makes serving up favorites to a smaller crowd that much easier.

Here is my Watermelon Lemonade recipe:

Ingredients~
  • 2 cups mashed watermelon pulp, sieved or use seedless
  • 1 cup lemon juice, about 2 lemons
  • 3 cups water
  • 1 cup ice cubes
  • 6 sprigs of mint
  • 2 tbsp honey 
Instructions~
  1. Juice lemons
  2. Mash watermelon (fun activity for the kids) or puree in a blender
  3. Mix all juices together
  4. Add honey 
  5. Pour into glasses
  6. Add ice cubes and 1 mint sprig per glass

Serves 6. Calories per 8 ounce serving: 46

Drink up! Enjoy! And have a great and thirst quenching Independence Day!
