Watermelon LemonadeServes 2 / /Total Time: 5 min
Ingredients4 cups watermelon, cubed* 1 tbs. fresh squeezed lemon juice (more to taste) 6 mint leaves
InstructionsPut watermelon and lemon juice in blender. Blend on medium speed until watermelon is completely broken down into a thin slush. Taste, and if it's too sweet, add more lemon juice 1 teaspoon at a time. To serve, gently muddle 3 mint leaves in the bottom of two glasses, then pour watermelon lemonade over it.
NotesIf you're going to serve right away, ideally the watermelon would be pre-chilled in the refrigerator. If not, you can muddle mint, then add ice before pouring watermelon lemonade in glass, or make the watermelon lemonade, and refrigerate for at least 1 hour before pouring into the glass. You could blend the mint into the drink, ( it will taste even more amazing!) but it will turn your drink rusty brown instead of bright pink!*
