Watermelon Lemonade is the perfect Summer drink. Or better yet, the perfect all-year-round drink for whenever you are in the mood for watermelon. I know watermelon is not an all-year-round fruit, but with the help of technology we can create greenhouses and grow individual plants, veggies and fruits anytime during the year.
I love mixing fruity drinks with extract and liquor. So, one day I wanted to bring our the taste of the lemonade, and I decided to add just a hint of limoncello liquor. Yummy, is how I can describe it. You don’t have to add a lot to taste the lemon.
I love entertaining my friends and family and seeing their faces and listen to the different guesses they come up with when I offer or feed them something new. This is a drink you can serve when entertaining guests at a barbecue because watermelon is usually large.

Watermelon is one on the best fruits that will satisfy your thirst.
Watermelon Lemonade is very refreshing, simple and easy to make. Just a good size watermelon and fresh squeezed lemonade and you have an excellent beverage to quench your thirst. I have added about ¼ cup limoncello just to give it that special and unique taste that I sometimes crave. Enjoy a refreshing beverage while the days are still hot and the sun is warm.
