Watermelon Lemonade

We have been enjoying these on the lake for the past few weeks.  A great way for kids and adults to brave this summer's heat.  Just don't forget to leave out the vodka for the little ones!

Serves 8


2 lemons, quartered

1 cup fresh mint leaves

1/2 cup packed light-brown sugar

1/2 medium seedless watermelon (about 9 pounds), rind removed, flesh cut into chunks

1 cup vodka (optional)


1.Squeeze lemons into a large pitcher; add squeezed lemon quarters. Add mint and sugar; mash with a wooden spoon until mint is bruised and sugar is dissolved.

2.In a blender, puree watermelon in batches until smooth; pour through a fine-mesh sieve into pitcher (you should have about 8 cups of juice). Stir to combine. (Refrigerate, covered, up to 3 days.) Add vodka, if using; serve over ice.
