      I love watermelon and lemonade, so this is one of my favorite lemonades! I originally came across this recipe which was posted by Nif at Recipezaar. I did however, modify the recipe a bit to my liking. Sometimes when I make this beverage, I'll add 4 cups of the chopped watermelon, and sometimes I may add 5 cups. Guess the sweetness of the melon determines how much I'd like to add, or if I'd like this to be a bit more tart and tangy, then I'll just add the 4 cups of the chopped melon.

      Refreshing Watermelon Lemonade

      4-5 cups chopped watermelon
      1-1/8 cups sugar (*See note)
      1-1/2 cups fresh lemon juice (*See note)
      3 cups water

      Place watermelon in a blender, and process until smooth.


      Strain the watermelon twice, and discard the pulp.

      Add the watermelon juice to a 2-quart pitcher, then add the sugar and lemon juice. Briskly stir until the sugar is dissolved.

      Now add the water, and stir.

      Chill the watermelon lemonade in the refrigerator.

      Serve chilled lemonade with ice, but stir well before serving.

      Yield: 56-ounces of "the best" watermelon lemonade ever!

      *Note: I found you will need 8 medium to large size lemons, to get 1 and a 1/2 cups of fresh lemon juice.

      Funny you should say that Aps, as my youngest daughter keeps tellin' me I should. But for now I submit recipes to our church cookbooks and our buyer's guide cookbooks, then I purchase the books and pass them onto other's.
