  • 1/4 watermelon diced and deseeded (if you can get the seedless variety, it saves a lot of work)
  • 1/3 to 1/2 cup lemon zest infused simple syrup
  • juice of one lemon
  • lots of ice cubes


  • Put the diced watermelon into the blender.
  • Pour in the simple syrup and lemon juice.
  • Add about two cups of water.
  • Process the mixture until smooth.
  • Strain into a pitcher. Add ice. Taste. Add more water and simple syrup, as needed.
  • Serve very cold.
