Ingredients
  • 6 c. fresh watermelon, rinds removed and cut into chunks
  • ¾ c. fresh lemon juice (6-8 medium lemons)
  • ½ c. cold water, (plus more, if needed)
  • ½ c. fresh mint leaves, tightly packed with stems removed

  • lemon slices, for garnish
  • mint infused simple syrup, optional
  • Citrus flavored vodka, optional adult version
Instructions
  1. Add watermelon chunks, lemon juice and ½ cup cold water to a blender and blend until liquefied. Pour through a fine mesh strainer to remove any larger particles. Taste and add more water, if needed. Sweeten with mint-infused simple syrup, if desired.
  2. Bruise ½ c. fresh mint leaves with fingers to release oils and add to the bottom of a large glass pitcher or jar. If serving immediately, add ice cubes to the container and pour the watermelon mixture over top. Add fresh lemon slices to the container for garnish.
  3. To serve, pour over ice and add a sprig of fresh mint and a lemon slice for garnish.
