Watermelon mint lemonade is a spin off a classic summer beverage but will really impress your barbecue guests.


Prep time: 15 Minutes

Total time: 15 Minutes

Yield: 6


  • 6 cups seedless watermelon, cubed in 1-inch pieces
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 3/4 cup agave syrup

  • Lemon slices
  • Fresh mint sprigs


  1. Blend the watermelon and water in a blender until smooth. (You may need to do this in 2 batches.)
