Makes around a gallon
9 cups watermelon juice (It took 3/4 of a large watermelon)
1 1/2 cups water
1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/2 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
2 cups sugar
2 cups water
1 extra lemon & lime to slice for the pitcher
First blend your watermelon. I cut mine into chunks to fit into my blender and pureed it. After that pour it through a fine mesh strainer, this step is important, you can see the difference before and after you strain it. Its very clear and looks like juice after you strain the solids out. Next juice your lemons and limes, if you wish you could just use lemons. Now you will want to make a simple syrup by combining 2 cups of sugar and 2 cups of water on the stove in a saucepan over medium heat, let it simmer long enough that all the sugar is dissolved then remove from heat. Last combine the syrup you just made with the watermelon juice, water, lemon juice and lime juice, stir to combine and chill. I sliced an extra lemon and lime to put in the pitcher. Last step is to share your refreshing beverage with friends and family! Enjoy!
