Summer Mocktail: Watermelon lemonade!


  • 1 large or 2 small watermelons

  • 8 oz lemon juice (from a bottle or squeeze your own)

  • 1/2 cup sugar (super-fine if you have it)

  • 1l bottle soda water

  • 1 lime , cut into slices

  • small handful mint

  • crushed ice

  • STEP 1 Cut the top off the watermelon and hollow it out using a large spoon, fishing out any seeds. Mash the flesh through a sieve into a bowl. Put the flesh in a blender with the lemon juice and sugar, blend to a purée, then stir in the soda water.

  • STEP 2 Pour mixture into a highball glass over ice and garnished with lime slices and mint. Alternatively, heap some ice into the hollowed-out watermelon and fill it with the lemonade mixture. Serve the rest in a pitcher with the lime slices and mint.

Looking for a boozy version? Add vodka, tequila, or white rum.
