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.
