Nothing says summer more than watermelon. The sweetness of the watermelon and lemon compliment each other beautifully . The fresh mint makes this drink cool and refreshing . If you want an extra kick you can add a shot vodka per glass. The perfect summer drink!! //This drink plus a shot of Titos vodka actually won my husband and I a trip to LA to a movie premiere. The name of the Movie was called The Hot Flashes and the called my drink The Hot Flash. It was Very cool watching Brooke Shields, Wanda Sykes, Daryl Hannah, Cameryn Manheim, and Virgina Madsen drink my drink I created!!////

How to Make Watermelon Mint Lemonade

Step-by-Step

  1. Make the lemon mint simple syrup.Combine water sugar mint leaves and one of the halfs of lemons in a small sauce pan. Bring up to a boil and then simmer 3-5 min or until all the sugar is dissolved. Set aside for about an hour to cool.After cooled strain mint leaves out
  2. I like my watermelon juice pulp free. I use a seedless watermelon , cut in cubes. Puree in a food processor or blender . Pour through a fine sieve using the back of a large spoon to push on the pulp. Discard pulp and repeat process until you have about 4 cups of watermelon juice.
  3. Juice lemons ..its takes about 3-4 large lemons.
  4. Mix Watermelon juice , lemon juice, and simple syrup mixture in a pitcher.Drop 5-6 large mint leaves in the pitcher for extra mint flavor . Mix well.Serve over a glass full of ice. Add a shot of vodka in each glass if desired. Garnish with a mint leaf.
  5. Store leftovers in refrigerator . The mixture will separate but just remix it. Keeps well for several days.
