Watermelon Lemonade

Watermelon Lemonade | Addicted to Recipes
I am SO IN LOVE with fresh, homemade lemonade this summer.  And I am loving trying new flavour combinations.  My food processor is getting a workout these days with all my experiments.  I've discovered that our 5 year old likes his lemonade on the tart side, while my hubby and I prefer things a little sweeter.   My latest kick is Watermelon Lemonade.  Here is a version that I made recently:

4 cups sliced/cubed watermelon (approximately 1/2 of a watermelon)
4 lemons
Water (3-4 cups, or depending on your taste)
Simple syrup (to taste) - Here is how to make simple syrup

In a food processor, puree the watermelon.  Squeeze the juice out of the 4 lemons, and combine with the watermelon puree.  STRAIN into your pitcher.  Add ice cold water and mix.  Add your simple syrup and mix.  Start by adding a 1/2 cup of the syrup and taste - then add more syrup as needed to satisfy your taste buds!

I've also made a version throwing a little pineapple juice into the mix.  Our son loved that one a LOT!
