Watermelon Mint Lemonade – Chick-Fil-A Copycat

Are you a  lemonade fan!? We are! we love a quick, easy refreshing lemonade-  And when Chick-Fil-A started selling a watermelon mint version I knew we had to do a copycat! With a summer weather upon us – there is really nothing like a nice cold glass of refreshing lemonade – and let me tell you, the mint-infused simple syrup makes this drink extra delicious!

Mint Simple Syrup

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!

I used my Blendtec to create this lemonade.  The whole juice setting is amazing and makes homemade lemonade the easiest thing ever.  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.

The best ice

When it comes to ice – I always prefer crushed.  Or even better – nugget ice.  I love a good crunchy ice, so I use crush ice when I serve my cold beverages.  What kind of ice do you prefer?  I’ve seen nugget ice makers that sit on your countertops and I’m seriously considering one.  Do any of you have a recommendations?

So now that the days are long and the weather is warm, make sure that you make some time for yourself.  Whip up a batch of this sweet and minty treat, reserve some me time, and sit back and enjoy.

Skip the chick-fil-a and make your own watermelon mint lemonade.  Anyone can do it and the results will not disappoint!
