Sweet Watermelon Lemonade with Limes by Dinner4Two

Makes around a gallon

Sweet Watermelon Lemonade
9 cups watermelon juice – It took 3/4 of a large watermelon
1 1/2 cups water
1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/2 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
2 cups sugar
2 cups water
1 extra lemon & lime to slice for the pitcher


  • Cut your watermelon into chunks small enough to fit into the Royal vortex or a blender and puree.
  • Strain your watermelon puree through a fine mesh strainer, this step is important; you can see the difference before and after you strain it. It’s very clear and looks like juice after you strain the solids out.
  • Juice your lemons and limes, if you wish you could just use lemons.
  • Make the simple syrup…In the 1.5 QT Kitchen Charm sauce pan add 2 cups of sugar and 2 cups of water, turn heat to medium heat and let simmer long enough to dissolve all the sugar. Remove from the heat and let cool. You can put it the fridge on a hot pad to cool quicker.
  • Combine all in a gallon container or larger; the simple syrup, watermelon juice, 1 ½ cups water, lemon juice and lime juice, stir to combine and chill.

For added ambiance add additional sliced lemons and limes to the pitcher.

Enjoy sharing your refreshing beverage with friends and family!

Life is Delicious!
