cubed seeded watermelon
fresh strawberries, halved
fresh lemon juice
This was good. I'm not a huge fan of watermelon but my boyfriend and his family are. We decided to strain this drink though - it made it a lot smoother and got rid of any extra watermelon seeds. I think this drink would have been too chunky if we hadn't strained it. Also - I cut the sugar to 1/2 cup a batch and it was still a bit sweet. Taste your berries and your watermelon before you decide on how much sugar to add - if they're sweet you might need much at all.
I made this 'lemonade' for a picnic playdate we're having tomorrow and while this juice is pretty good, there's nothing much 'lemonade' about it. I reduced the sugar to 1/2 cup (which was plenty) and increased the lemon juice to nearly 1 cup. This is a pretty expensive drink to make, so while it was pretty tasty, it's not likely I will make it again.
Wow! Really good. I used 1/4 c lemon juice and 1/4 c lime juice, and only 1/2 c of sugar. My 3-year old (who won't eat fruit) loves it, and for the grownups it's pretty darn good with a shot of vodka!
All my guests agreed that this was really good and refreshing. So easy too! I did use a little less sugar than it called for. I did it in two batches (my blender was not big enough for everything) and used a scant half a cup of sugar in each batch. Next time I will try going even less since it was very sweet. I will definitely be making this again.
Because hubs prefers raspberries over strawberries and because it's what I had on hand, I made this as written, but used raspberries. Thick, refreshing and delicious, we both enjoyed this pretty drink! Next time, however, I'll cut back on the sugar a bit and blend this with ice cubes rather than water. This is VERY filling, almost like a meal in a glass!
Really good! My husband absolutely loved it. I also like it, but I wouldn't call it a typical lemonade. It is too sweet for that. I made it exactly as it was. 1/2 cup fresh lemon is 3 good size lemons. Since I don't like pulp of any kind, I strained the drink. I am so glad I did, because it is tasty and refreshing. If I was to make this a true lemonade, I would cut back on the sugar.
I needed a few recipes today to keep my mind off my troubles. This is one of them. Took a bit of work (and I strained the heck out of this) but when all was said and done, the end product is incredible. (I'm so happy I live in an area where the Farmers Markets are so wonderful and have such fresh ingredients.) I suggest you do what I did and buy a seedless watermelon. I can't wait to share it with my family for dinner! A+++++++!
pinkdiamond1001 said it perfectly! I should have listened to her because I did not strain it and I think I would have enjoyed it more if I had. And mine came out very sweet also, so next time I will reduce the sugar. Nice, refreshing drink, though! Thank you!
