Sparkling Watermelonade

Watermelon and lemon are two of the most thirst-quenching ingredients I know. Together, they′re unstoppable.

After a long, hot day in Brooklyn: a 3-year old′s birthday party, running through park sprinklers, grocery shopping for the following week, I needed this drink to cool me down. Trust me, this drink will quench your thirst.

6 Comments: Sparkling Watermelonade

Tiffany Said:

This looks very interesting. I’ve never had watermelon juice, other than it dripping down my chin when I bite into a big slice. :-) I’m going to try this out. Sounds great, and just in time before the weather turns too cold and I can’t find anymore watermelons.

Theresa P. Said:

This combination sounds great! I love both flavors. and yes, i think you are right. that the watermelon is sweet enough. there is no need for sugar.

allison Said:

just curious how much watermelon to lemon juice??

Silvana Said:

Hi Allison, the ratio of watermelon to lemon juice is really to taste. I like a lot of tartness from the lemon juice, so I’d likely use 2:1 or 3:1, watermelon to lemon juice, depending on the tartness of your lemons. Hope that helps!

Christianne Said:

Silvana,Does the immersion blender actually chop up the ice w/o harming the blades?
