Watermelon Lemonade

I hope you enjoyed a fun-filled Father's Day with your families yesterday!

We spent our Father's Day on a road trip, making the long trek from Utah to Colorado.  Mr. Oopsey Daisy  has 2 brothers getting married this summer, so this weekend we attended wedding #1.  We have lots of stories and pictures to share later on.

I finally feel like summer is here.  Bring on the season of barbecues!!
Any good summer barbecue includes a yummy punch! 
One of the things I love most about summer is watermelon!  The only problem is that in our house, our small family simply can't eat an entire watermelon before its delicious fruit become damp and slimy.
I do try to avoid wasting even a morsel of watermelon.  So last summer, I started experimenting with recipes for watermelon drinks.
This recipe is fresh and tasty--plus it helps solve the problem of what to do with excessive amounts of watermelon!  After our family has munched on watermelon all week long, we finish off our leftovers by making this watermelon lemonade.
Come along and see how to make this yummy punch... It's simple!
And that's it!

Serve it fresh, and you have a yummy punch that appears to be MUCH more complicated than it really is.
I found some green frosted martini glasses to serve this yumminess.
And yes, I couldn't resist dropping in a few chocolate chips so it looks just like a real watermelon!

  1. This looks awesome. I’m going shopping so I can make these tonight!

  2. Yum! I may have to make some of this and turn it into popcicles for the little guy. Your presentation is stunning, Alison! Super cute and creative!

  3. hmmm, a little vodka, for the adults, wouldn’t hurt either! looks delicious and the glasses are so cute!

  4. Wow Alison! That looks great! I think I will serve that at my daughter’s luau this Friday. YUMMY!

  5. That’s so cute, but we never have *any watermelon left. Actually, I usually cut it all up in a bowl, take a break and come back to the bowl half empty. You’d think the culprit would be my daughter, but nope… it’s my husband. He could eat a whole watermelon himself, I think, if I’d let him. :) I might sneak some and try this, though!

  6. Sounds good, we will have to try this. for another idea with left over watermellon is to freeze cubed watermellon on a tray, when frozen put in a ziplock bag and use it in place of ice cubes in smoothies.

  7. Jugo de Sandia! I totally drank something similar to this on my mission. I will have to try it! Thanks!

  8. We have a big family, and it still sometimes can go to waste before we eat it all. I will definitely be trying this!
