Strawberry Watermelon Homemade Lemonade

This 3-step process makes 2 quarts of delicious, thirst-quenching lemonade!

 

Step 1: Simple syrup

2 cups white granulated sugar

2 cups water

 

Bring sugar and water to a boil and remove from heat. Stir until sugar dissolves. Refrigerate and use for any recipe that calls for sugar to be dissolved in a liquid. It’s great for lemonade or for cocktails.

 

Step 2: Strawberry and watermelon ice cubes

2 cups watermelon

2 cups strawberries

 

In the blender, puree chunks of watermelon and strawberries to a smooth consistency. Pour the puree into ice cube trays and freeze.

 

Step 3: Lemonade

1 ½  cups fresh squeezed lemon juice

1 ½ cups simple syrup

5 cups water and ice cubes

 

Squeeze lemons and remove any seeds that fall into the juice. Pulp is fine or you can strain it. Add simple syrup and water. Feel free to add more lemon juice or water to make it more or less tart to suit your taste. Add strawberry watermelon ice cubes and enjoy!
