Also, I had three large juicy lemons which needed using ASAP.

Are you thinking what I am thinking? If life gives you lemons and you already have watermelon, why not make some watermelon lemonade?3 glasses filled with watermelon lemonade.

How to make watermelon lemonade

Cut the watermelon into 2 then slice to manageable segments, dice the watermelon. You will need about 6 cups for this recipe.
Blend watermelon in a power blender and pass the juice through a tiny mesh. You can eat the pulp if you wish or add a bit to the watermelon juice.

Place a small saucepan on medium heat, add sugar and water to make syrup.

Add the lemonade juice to a pitcher, then add the lemon juice. Stir in the sugar syrup, add some ice and finish it off with some mint leaves.

Tips

If watermelon juice becomes cloudy after sieving, there is a probability that you haven’t sieved it through a tiny mesh and some pulp has escaped into the juice. There is nothing to worry about as it doesn’t affect the taste. If you want, you can sieve it again but this time using the tiniest hole sieve you may have.

Watermelon will separate and sink to the bottom if left to sit for a while. Nothing to fret about, just give it a quick stir and drink up.
