How Do You Make Watermelon Mint Lemonade?

I started this recipe by creating a simple syrup infused with mint leaves.  A simple syrup us a cinch to make and the base of tons of drinks.  And the addition of the mint will make this simple syrup smell like a dream! Let me tell you all about it:

  1. Combine water, sugar, and mint in a small saucepan.  Heat over medium-high heat until sugar is melted.  Remove from heat and let cool completely.
  2. Strain the simple syrup through a fine mesh strainer to remove the mint leaves.  You’ll be left with a to-die-for mint simple syrup.
  3. Combine watermelon, lemons (rind removed), ice, water, and simple syrup in a blender.
  4. If using a Blendtec – select the whole juice setting.  If using another blender – blend until completely smooth. I used my Blendtec to create this lemonade.  The whole juice setting is amazing and makes homemade lemonade the easiest thing ever.
  5. Serve over ice.

Pro Tip: Forget juicing those lemons!  Just remove the rind and throw them in whole! Having a fresh whole juice with ripe water melon and tangy lemons is going to knock your socks off.  Say goodbye to that powdered stuff.

How Long Does Homemade Lemonade Last?

The lemonade will last about 2 weeks in your fridge.  You can also freeze homemade lemonade!  It will keep in your freezer for about 3 months.

    I just made this and it is delightful! Very light and refreshing. I might reduce the amount of sugar just for kicks and giggles and see if it effects the flavor. The mint syrup adds a beautiful touch.
