A Recipe for Watermelon Limeade

Brooke of Be Fed Again is back this week with another great recipe for us!  Just in time for Summer, it's a simple recipe for Watermelon Limeade.  Perfect for a backyard barbecue with the family!  Stop by the twitter or facebook page and let us know if you try this recipe out.  Enjoy!


7 cups watermelon cut into chunks
3/4 cup fresh lime juice
2 Tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon simple syrup (how to make simple syrup)

Put watermelon chunks into food processor and process until mixture looks soupy.  
Place a strainer over an empty bowl.  Pour watermelon mixture into strainer, and strain out all of the juices, pressing on the solids.  You should have 4 cups of strained watermelon juice.  Discard the solids.
Stir in lime juice and simple syrup.

Serve over ice and garnish with fresh limes, watermelon, and a mint leaf.

If you missed Brooke's recipe for orange-cranberry scones, it's a great one to go back and check out.  See you all on Friday!
