Watermelon Punch

This summer's end treat can be enjoyed by everyone or used as a base to make watermelon margaritas! Serve it plain or mix it with a bit of sparkling water for a bubbly sensation. You could even use bits of frozen watermelon as fancy ice cubes!

1 c sugar
1/2 c water
2 c lemon juice
1 watermelon (size doesn't matter)

  1. Mix water & sugar together in a small saucepan & heat, stirring until sugar is dissolved.
  2. Remove flesh from watermelon & discard seeds. (Or save them to plant in the spring!)
  3. Add watermelon & sugar to a blend & blend into a homogeneous liquid.
  4. Mix lemon juice & watermelon in a large pitcher & add water to make 2 or 3 quarts (whatever tastes good to you).
