Easy Fresh Lemonade
This fresh watermelon lemonade is the perfect drink to bring along with us for our holiday picnics or even just when we are going to the pool. It is one of my favorite drinks to put in to my water bottle for a summer day.
For this recipe I started with my watermelon juice recipe, which is one that my kids love to have me make for them. If you have never made it, I highly suggest you do. It is like the easiest drink recipe ever and so refreshing!
This recipe was inspired by a trip to Chic-Fil-A. I had the watermelon lemonade at Chick-fil-A and when I took a sip I was sad to find out that instead of tasking like a real watermelon flavor, it tasted like the candy watermelon flavor.
It was my sadness the day I tried the watermelon lemonade at Chick-fil-A that inspired me to create this pink lemonade made with fresh watermelon and fresh lemon.
This fresh lemonade recipe is so much better then the Chick-fil-A watermelon lemonade. The one makes me sad because it tastes like a candy watermelon flavor instead of the refreshing flavor of a fresh juicy watermelon.

Tips for Making Watermelon Lemonade
Cut the watermelon into small cubes. Cubes of watermelon blend better than larger chunks.
Squeeze the lemons with a juicer. As much fun as it is to squeeze lemons by hand it takes a bit of time, so to speed things up I like to use a lemon juicer.
When serving this watermelon lemonade, I love using Mason Jar glasses and fun straws plus you can also a drink umbrella too! You can get totally fancy and add lemon slices and watermelon slices on the edges of the glasses for even more flare!

Blender – Personally I am in love with my Ninja Intelli-Sense Kitchen Blender.
