The Perfect Watermelon Lemonade

the perfect watermelon lemonade

Summertime!! I live in northern Canada, where the summer months are short-lived. I have to make the best of every minute! Gardening, playing baseball, camping – it doesn’t matter what we are doing, there are classic recipes in this home that get made every year, and this one definitely tops the summer list. It might get made a lot because we can never finish the entire big watermelon… lol. But it’s also delicious! It’s the perfect Watermelon Lemonade.

We don’t usually drink or but juice in our home (I know… sounds crazy!), so having a cool juice to drink in the summer is a real treat! The mini watermelons are perfect for this recipe because they are already seedless, but I often end up using half of a huge watermelon because with only 3.5 eaters here (can I call my baby .5 of an eater? lol), we don’t usually finish it! Just be sure to fish out all the seeds first if you use a big one!

You probably noticed I also gave instructions for an icy kiwi version. It’s delicious! Just add a dollop of your frozen kiwi mixture to the drink. The flavours blend perfectly! Although, I didn’t mention it in the recipe… you can also make a adult version with a little Vodka or Gin :)

  1. This sounds fantastic! Since moving away from Canada I’ve found it difficult to find canned lemonade in any of the countries we have lived in (such a staple in my growing up!) so will have to get creative mixing this up a bit… Thank you!

    1. Oh really?! I had no idea that it was difficult to find elsewhere! Can you buy the powder mix? That would work too :) Substitute as much powder as you would need for two pitchers of lemonade and add some ice!

  2. My fellow Canadian, this was DELICIOUS and just perfect for a summers day. I just loved the hint of watermelon with the lemonade and would never have thought to mix the two! Thank you so much for sharing with us at You Link It, We Make It – this recipe is my main feature for tomorrow morning! We hope you’ll visit us again. :) – Kim @ knockitoffkim.com

  3. Wow! How simple and delicious is this?! And it’s so pretty too! I just love the color and it looks so refreshing! I can’t wait to serve this up at our next gathering. We always have a few non-alcoholic beverages on the buffet table, and I like to change it up from time to time. Thanks for sharing this! Now… I just need an excuse to throw a party! LOL
