Lemonade is summer to me.  Weirdly I don't drink it during the winter or fall though sometimes in the spring.  I've been making lemonade by the glass and sometimes by the pitcher for years but never thought to add watermelon to it.  Last summer while on a trip, we stopped at a little roadside stand and I had the best lemonade.  Though they made it a bit different, they would pour your lemonade and then pour some of the watermelon puree on top and let it settle through.  It was sweet and slightly chunky but oh so good.  I decided to make it all in one shot as, well, I'm lazy.  
The only other difference, for years I did not have a good juicer.  I learned just to cut the rind off my lemons and throw it all into the blender. Strangely I still make my lemonade this way.  I like the pulp but when serving to guests, I run it through the strainer.  Either way it is delicious.  
Now, I've only added 2/3 cups sugar, the amount of sugar is directly proportional to how sweet your watermelon is.  The sweeter and juicer your watermelon is, the less sugar you will need.  Start with the 2/3 cups and add more if you need it.
Hope you enjoy this recipe!
Recipe:

  • 3 Lemons

You can strain or leave the pulp (I actually like it better with the pulp)
