Watermelon Lemonade with Rosemary

A cool, refreshing watermelon lemonade with fresh garden rosemary! This drink has just the right combination of sweet & tart to cool you off on a hot summer day.
Total Time3 mins


  • 1/4 c fresh lemon juice
  • 1 Tbsp simple syrup
  • 1/2 c cold water
  • 3/4 c watermelon, blended
  • 1/4 tsp rosemary, roughly chopped
  • Ice cubes


  • To make simple syrup, simply combine 1 c water and 1 c granulated sugar in a pot and bring to a summer until all sugar has dissolved. Place in a container and chill in the fridge. This will last two to three weeks.
  • Place about 1 c chopped watermelon in a blender. I found it necessary to carefully press it down with a wooden spoon, so all the chunks were touching the cutting blade. Blend until smooth.
  • I also grabbed a sprig of fresh rosemary from the garden, took off a few needles, and broke them up by hand. I’m thinking it was about 1/4 tsp or so.
  • In a glass, combine all ingredients, stir, garnish with small slices of watermelon and lemon, and enjoy!
