Watermelon Lemonade

<p>Isn&#8217;t is self explanatory? Watermelon Lemonade, people!</p>

Serves: Enough to drink

1/4 cup Fresh squeezed lemon juice
1/2 cup Watermelon (puree)
3 tbsp Simple Syrup
3/4 cup Cold Water

Step by Step Instructions
  1. * Make your own simple syrup: Please. I see it sold in stores and it just boggles my mind. Simmer one part water with one part sugar (I did a cup of each and ended up with more than I needed for a quadruple batch) until sugar has dissolved. Let cool. Or, you can use my speedier method where you simmer one part sugar with half as much water and once it has dissolved, add the second half of the water, cold, which cools the mixture down faster (when you like nothing to slow your pace to the nearest mocktail).
  2. Stir it all together and serve over ice. Garnish it with a thin watermelon or lemon wedge, if you’re feeling fancy.
