Spiked Watermelon Lemonade

July 29, 2011

This beautiful pink lemonade is summer in a glass.  It is refreshing, sweet, and has a hint of mint.  This pink cocktail is made from chuncks of fresh watermelon pureed with mint simple syrup and lemon juice.  If you are not a fan of the herbal flavor of gin, you can substitute with a more neutral spirit like vodka.  You can serve this watermelon lemonade in mason jars for a down-home look or in fancy martini glasse.  Either way this cocktail is a must-have at your next summer get together.
