Watermelon Lemonade … Or WaterLemon?

Watermelon Lemonade

Whew!

Is it me or are the days getting hotter in this part of the world?

Not only do I prefer eating food that requires no cooking, I also get thirsty every five minutes.

I thought  it’s just right to make my favorite drink of all time — Lemonade!! I also thought we should take advantage of Watermelons which are cheaper this time of the year to our good old Lemonade a twist.

This Watermelon Lemonade is good company while I do a marathon of my favorite crime/drama series. I’m done with NCIS L.A. and Hawaii Five-O. Yaaayy!! Finally!

Tonight, I shall move on to the latest season of Arrow…

Watermelon Lemonade

I initially thought this Watermelon Lemonade is a bad idea and that it’s gonna be weird. It’s surprisingly not and it turned out to be quite refreshing. I think I’m gonna be adding some mint leaves next time.

My niece Cyvrine told me I should call it WaterLemon.  I should, shouldn’t I?

  1. This drink looks so gorgeous and interesting and summery that even if it didn’t taste good, it would be wonderful to see it sitting on a table. However, I would think that the two would compliment each other. You tested it, so the theory holds. Again I love the look of it.

  2. Ohhh! Watermelon + lemonade = AWESOME! I haven’t tried this one, but such a great combination that I never thought of before. I love it, and can’t wait to try. Love the refreshing watermelon cubes in the juice! <3

  3. such a refreshing sip for soothing summers….this is so going to be a favorite lemonade flavor at home…gorgeous food clicks as always 🙂

  4. Now I need to find me a watermelon. Last year I made watermelon coolers which were very labor intensive. This year I’ll be making this. Great looking lemonade Peachy and I bet it’s perfect for relieving the summer heat.

  5. This is perfect for our eclectic weather. Will t it sometime 🙂 btw, arrow season two is better than the first. So excited for season 3 🙂

  6. This looks so refreshing! Thank you for sharing! Wish I saw this when I was preparing for my friend’s baby shower but someone else was in charge of the drinks….next time….:)

  7. Sounds like an amazing combo! Sayang, I literally just ate the last of my watermelon stash int he fridge. Sa next grocery trip nalang, I will buy ingredients.
