  1. Place the watermelon into a blender. Cover, and puree until smooth. Strain through a fine mesh sieve.
  2. Bring sugar and 1/2 cup water to a boil in a saucepan over medium-high heat until sugar dissolves, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in 3 cups of cold water and the lemon juice. Divide the ice into 12 glasses, and scoop 2 to 3 tablespoons of watermelon puree over the ice, then top with the lemonade. Gently stir before serving.

I assembled this right before a party. I was horrified at how sickeningly sweet it was. I even cut down the sugar as per other reviews. I added a lemon club soda to it and it saved the day. ...

THIS IS SO GOOD!!! I like this better than plain lemonade... a lovely combination of sweet and sour, like a Warhead candy. I had simple syrup on hand, and I only used 1/3 cup... I believe this ...

Too much work for the end result. Eating the watermelon along side a glass of cold lemonade would have been just as refreshing.

I use about half the sugar, or substitute honey or agave nectar, to make it healthier.

SUPER......even 5 stars w/ vodka...uummmmm

I am not a fan of watermelon, but my kids just loved this!
