Good Friday to you all! It's time for a special Favorite Ingredients Friday Refreshing Drinks Edition! This week is all about drinks! The recipes can be alcoholic or non-alcoholic. They can be healthy or decadent. You choose! I can't wait to see what you all come up with!
The recipe I'm sharing was given to me by a friend of a friends. She served it at a bridal shower gathering and, after tasting it, I just had to have the recipe! Thankfully she was willing to share.
Strawberry Watermelon Lemonade
1 seedless watermelon (about 6 lbs. will do nicely)
2 pints of strawberries, hulled
PreparationPrepare lemonade concentrate and water in a large pitcher.
Puree hulled strawberries in food processor or blender until there are no chunks.
Cut apart seedless watermelon into small chunks, make sure pesky white seeds are out. Try to work over a bowl to keep all the juice in. Use a mesh strainer if necessary to get out all seeds and maintain the juice.
Put watermelon chunks & juice into food processor or blender and puree until there are no chunks. Drain liquid through a wire mesh strainer one more time to get out any grit.
Put strawberry & watermelon juice in with the pitcher of lemonade. Stir and chill.
Serve in a chilled glass with additional sliced strawberries as garnishment! Rum can be added on an individual basis if desired.
Now, I look forward to seeing your Favorite Ingredients Friday Refreshing Drinks Edition recipe! I won't be able to visit your recipes right away but fear not, I will stop by to visit your recipe as soon as I can!
