Nothing says summer like a fresh glass of lemonade. But add some watermelon to it, and now you've got yourself an amazing drink! We are soaking up summer as long as we can!
Follow along as I make a fresh batch of watermelon lemonade. I even got some fun watermelon-themed tools to help me out.
First, cut 1-2 small watermelons into a small cube using a serrated knife and watermelon slicer like this one from Chef'n. Just use the double-sided slicer to cut through the watermelon vertically and then go the other way to make small cubes. Save half of the watermelon for sliced garnish.
After that, place the watermelon into a blender and pulse until it's all blended together! YUM!!! We love the Wolf blender in the kitchen because of the high-speed options and quick blending abilities.
Next, take watermelon and pour it through a strainer and reserve 2 cups of the watermelon juice, and set the leftover to the side.
In a large pitcher, mix together 2 cups of watermelon juice, and fill the rest with water or sparkling water! Add a half cup of sugar at a time. Add more or less depending on personal preference.
For a special treat, use the Dexas ice cube maker to make watermelon-flavored ice cubes. Just fill the container up with the leftover watermelon juice.
Put the frozen ice cubes into a glass and pour lemonade over the ice!
