"This is a recipe I created in an effort to duplicate my favorite lemonade from a cafe in downtown L.A. called, well, 'Lemonade'. I don't like it too sweet, so if you want to add more sugar, cool. But I think that this recipe is perfect. It also makes a great martini served in a sugar-rimmed glass with a garnish of watermelon wedge and a twist of lemon! Simply fabulous!"

Wow! This is excellent - and loved by 4 teenage boys, too. Got busy and ended up leaving my rosemary steeping for about 3 hours instead of 1 - which turned out fine. Tip: 1 largish baby 'seedles...

A very interesting change from the typical lemonade. Even my family (who don't typically welcome 'different' recipes) enjoyed this!

I LOVED this. It was so unique and refreshing and a bit floral. If it were just me, I'd give it 5 stars. However, I made it for a party, and only about half my guests liked it. So, I don't know ...

Only one person out of 10 didn't like it! A little too bitter for me, but still good. I wish I had chilled the glasses, though.

This drink is delicious! Very refreshing, and the flavors work so well together. Will definitely make again!

Tastes great. A little labor intensive. But, well worth the work.

I loved this! Only used enough watermelon to fill up the blender because I wanted a potent rosemary taste. Best drink I've had in a while.
