I quadrupled the recipe because I just knew it would be amazing and it was just enough for one pitcher of wonderful-ness.
You will need:
1 cup (8 ounces) fresh-squeezed lemon juice
2 cups (16 ounces) fresh watermelon puree. I just threw the watermelon chunks in my trusty blender. Then I poured it into my sieve. You wouldn't think that watermelon would be so pulpy but it absolutely is.
1 cup (8 ounces) simple syrup. Smitten Kitchen's recipe called for approximately 3/4-ish cup of simple syrup, but I like mine a little sweeter. You definitely need to make your own simple syrup for this. Trust me.
3 cups of cold water + additional ice.Stir together all of your ingredients and you are in the watermelon lemonade business. Yum.
How was your 4th of July weekend??
