Simple Syrup
  • 1 cup honey
  • 1 cup water
  • 4 sprigs fresh mint
Watermelon Lemonade
  • 4 cups cubed watermelon
  • 1 cup fresh lemon juice, about 6 large lemons
  • 3 cups cold water
  • ice
  • lemon wedges
  • mint
  1. Over medium heat, bring honey, water, and fresh mint to a boil, whisking occasionally. Once the syrup has reached a boil, remove from heat and allow to cool to room temperature, about 30 minutes or so.
  2. With a blender or food processor, puree watermelon and lemon juice together. Strain the mixture through a sieve to remove the pulp (if you do not mind pulp, you can skip this step).
  3. Pour the watermelon juice and lemon juice into a large pitcher.
  4. Remove mint from simple syrup, and pour the syrup into the pitcher.
  5. Add in 3 cups of water (this is to taste, so you can add more/less water until it reaches your desired flavor).
  6. Stir the mixture.
  7. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
  8. Serve with ice, lemon wedges, or fresh mint, if desired.
