Chunky Watermelon Lemonade

05/08/2013 16:39 ● By Rick McGarry

Watermelon and lemonade are standard fare at summer picnics. This recipe combines both.

2 cups water

⅓ cup (or to taste) raw sugar

2 cups seedless watermelon puree

1 fresh lemon, sliced thinly

¼ cup lemon juice

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 cups chopped seedless watermelon

In a half-gallon pitcher with lid, mix 1 cup of the water with the sugar until the sugar is completely dissolved.  Stir in the rest of the water, watermelon puree, sliced lemon, lemon juice and vanilla extract. Stir to mix well and chill thoroughly. Stir in 2 cups of chopped watermelon just before serving. 

Serves 2 to 3.
