Watermelon Lemonade

When I talked to my Sister in Law about making this Watermelon Lemonade, she said she would bring me her juicer.  I thought she meant one of those things that mashes the inside of the fruit.  Nope.  She meant this kinda scary beast of a machine that rips into fruits and veggies and squeezes every drop out.  I bought 2 watermelons to get enough juice from them for this, but with this juicer I only needed 3/4 of one!  of course you don’t HAVE to have a mean juicing machine to make this, but it is super cool and now I want one to start making my own crazy juices!

You will need:

2 1/2 cups lemon juice
5 cups watermelon juice
2 cups sugar
12 cups water
2 tsp salt (to cut the bitterness of lemon)

I love this juicer my SIL let me borrow for this recipe.  It was super easy to use and clean afterwards!

Combine water, sugar and salt in a pan and heat until sugar is dissolved well.

Juice lemons and watermelon.  If you don’t have a juicer you can blend or crush the watermelon to get as much juice as possible from the fruit.

In a large container or dispenser, add all ingredients together.  Add lots of ice and a few lemon and watermelon slices!  Enjoy!  

As I said before, I also used some of the lemonade to make ice pops!  They were delicious!
