(Makes enough to fill two glasses, with ice cubes)
  • 1/4 cup (60ml) fresh-squeezed lemon juice – plus a few lemon wedges for garnish
  • 1/2 cup (125ml) fresh watermelon puree, strained through a coarse strainer to remove seeds – plus a few thin watermelon wedges for garnish
  • 3 (45ml) tablespoons  simple syrup (see notes)
  • 1/4 cup (175ml)  natural soda or sparkling water
  • 1/2 cup (125ml) cold water
  • fresh mint leaves for garnish (optional)
  • add a splash of Vodka (optional)

Make it

  1. Combine all ingredients
  2. Stir together and serve over ice.
  3. Garnish it with a watermelon or lemon wedge, and some fresh mint leaves if you’re feeling fancy.

Make your own simple syrup by simmering 1 part water with 1 part sugar until sugar has dissolved. Let it cool.
