Watermelon Lemonade

Fall is setting in and summer is almost left in the dust.  I'm sure you can still find watermelons for a little while longer.  This was a perfect quencher for the hot summer days, and it seems to be a nice drink for these hot fall days, as well.  It's kinda weird, the weather.  In the mornings when I leave for class, I find myself having to wear a hoodie or a sweater.  But as soon as it hits the afternoon, it's bloody darn hot outside!

I'm not complaining though, because this is my favorite season.  Fall is where the leaves change color (the perfect backdrop for any photo!). The temperature drops ever so slightly, but not enough to make you hibernate inside.  It's actually GREAT to be outside in the fall.  I find that my wardrobe definitely reflects the fall, and I'm glad I can take out all those clothes that have been in hiding for the past few months!

What about you guys?  What is your favorite season? 


1 medium sized watermelon, seeded and cut into cubes
1 cup water
2 lemons, seeded and juiced
3 tablespoons powdered sugar

In a blender, combine all the ingredients, except for the ice.  Strain, if necessary.

Fill a large pitcher with ice, about halfway.  Pour in mixture from blender.

Serve in glasses and allow your thirst to be quenched while it's still decently hot outside!

How easy is that?  Extremely!  And once you've had it, you'll be making it all the time!  I'm a fan of regular lemonade, but when you throw watermelon into the mix, I'm all in!  Enjoy!

P.S. Here's our weekly CSA! 

2 lbs. apples
2 lbs. sweet potatoes
1 acorn squash
3 hot peppers (aren't they gorgeous?!)
2 lbs. summer squash
1 french baguette

Great stuff this week and if I make it to round 3 of Project Food Blog - you'll definitely get to see a lot of it in action!  So I guess that was a segue way into letting you know there's still time to vote for my Challenge #2 Entry on the Azores! Thanks for all the support, once again!  And hopefully you'll be hearing about a Luxury Dinner soon enough!


  1. I've had watermelon lemonade only once, but I loved it! Thanks for posting. Love the photo of your CSA also, nicely done!

  2. The watermelon lemonade sounds very refreshing! I love the color...

  3. Yum - this keeps summer going!!! And congrats on the engagement! (My daughter is also newly engaged as of 2 weeks ago! So fun to have a blog to share news and pics!)

  4. as we are in a heat wave here on the west coast of California, this post is very appropriate. I will go in search of a watermelon right now.

  5. I am all over fall. I love the clothes, the foods, the holidays...but it is still warm enough in Texas to merit summer drinks like this! This watermelon lemonade sounds delicious. Very unique! Thanks for sharing with me. I'm going to make this tomorrow.

  6. Watermelon lemonade sounds fab! It's pretty chilly here now. Usually in September it's bright and a lot warmer than it is now. Oh well, that's unpredictable Germany.

    My favorite season is fall! Birthdays, holidays, cozy nights in, playing in the leaves, crisp air...just about everything!

  7. Great watermelon lemonda, ok I may be biased because Mexican drink this too :) No really your recipe is perfect and so is the photo. Fall is also my favorite season. Good luck on the PFB challenge & hope you advance, you have my vote.
