Food Fashion and Flow: Watermelon Strawberry Lemonade

Watermelon Strawberry Lemonade


 The warm months are always more enjoyable with a thirst quenching drink. This watermelon strawberry lemonade combines the best of both worlds. The juicy refreshing taste of fresh watermelon and the tangy thirst quenching taste of lemons balanced with the sweetness of strawberries and melon. 

Absolutely delicious on a hot day. You can adjust if too sweet by adding more lemon or water and for a touch of fizz, 7-up or sprite are perfect. If you are after an adult libation, a shot of vodka does the trick perfectly.





Ingredients 

4 cups cubed watermelon
1 cup fresh strawberries sliced in half
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup lemon juice
1/2 cup lime juice 
4 cups water

Directions

Place the watermelon and berries in blender. Blend until smooth. Strain through a fine sieve. Bring sugar and 1/2 cup water to boil in medium saucepan until sugar is completely dissolved about 3-5 minutes. Remove from heat. Let cool slightly and then in a pitcher, pour the sugar water, remaining 3 1/2 cups water, lemon juice, lime juice, and watermelon berry mixture. Stir until well blended.

Adjust drink by adding more lemon and water as needed or your choice of 7up or sprite.

Cheers!

@Kita,

I love refreshing summer drinks too. The lime adds a certain amount of tartness, but sometimes I add lemon and lime and it is extra tart with just the right amount of sweetness.
