Watermelon Lemonade

Nothing says summer like watermelon and lemonade. Combine the two with some simple syrup and lemon juice for refreshing watermelon lemonade.

Summer is for watermelon and lemonade and all things that cool us off. So why not mix the two together? After making strawberry lemonade, we wanted to try other flavors.

This watermelon is very sweet. If you don’t like a very sweet drink, you may want to lower the amount of simple syrup. The boys and I enjoyed it like this, but we could only have small amounts at a time. Watermelon lemonade is perfect for a hot summer day to keep yourself hydrated.

If you want to turn this into an adult drink, you can add some rum.

    Hi! I”m not familiar with “simple syrup.” What brand or label do you use for this? Perhaps that will help me find my way to it at the supermarket.

  3. Watermelon and lemonade are both great and even better together! This would make for excellent summer refreshment on a hot day.

  4. One of my favorite candle scents is watermelon lemonade. I have never tried the drink, but I’d like to. Perfect for summer.
