Sharing is caring!

I have three different ways to make this Watermelon Lemonade recipe. If you are watching your calorie intake you will want the Skinny Watermelon Lemonade Recipe or it you want a twist, you can make it into a Hard Watermelon Lemonade too!  Be sure to check out all of our homemade lemonade recipes here.

Watermelon Lemonade Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 4 cups watermelon
  • 3 cups cold water
  • 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 6 cups of ice cubes

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook time: 0 minutes

Yield: 6 cups

Instructions for the Watermelon Lemonade Recipe

  1. Start by squeezing out the juice of your fresh lemons using a lemon squeezer.
    Next, start to puree the watermelon and pour the contents into a strainer when done.
    In a sauce pan, add the sugar and a 1/2 cup of water heating in on medium heat until the sugar dissolves (about 5 minutes or so). This will be the base of your lemonade. 
  2. Remove it from the heat. Stir in the other 3 cups of cold water and the freshly squeezed lemon juice
  3. Divide the ice between 12 glasses and add about 3 tablespoons of the watermelon puree first, then top with the lemonade. 
  4. Gently stir it before serving.

Skinny Watermelon Lemonade:

When I am trying to watch my calorie intake I use a different method for making this recipe. There are all different kinds of Watermelon and Lemon Liquid drink mixes that have no calories (or have very few calories). I use these mixes to create a Watermelon Lemonade drink and serve it with ice. Perfect for those wanting a “skinny” lemonade recipe.

Hard Watermelon Lemonade:

Simple add any alcohol you want to either above recipe to create your favorite hard lemonade drink.
