Watermelon Lemonade

I'm running very low on recipes right now. Some recipes I've sent out email requests for, but most of what I intend to post needs to be experimented with first. Today, I came across this simple recipe during my morning coffee-and-internet time. I've never tried it, something like this cannot possibly fail. It comes from Smitten Kitchen:

Makes enough to fill two glasses with ice cubes. Quadrupled it to fill a pitcher.

--1/4 cup Fresh-Squeezed Lemon Juice
--1/2 cup Fresh Watermelon Puree, strained through a coarse strainer to remove seeds
--3 tbsp Simple Syrup (1 part Sugar dissolved in 1 part Hot Water, then cooled)
--3/4 cup Cold Water

Stir it all together and serve over Ice Cubes.

Variations from Smitten Kitchen: Garnish it with a Thin Watermelon or Lemon Wedge, if you’re feeling fancy. If you’re looking for a spritzier version of this, swap one-third (1/4 cup) or more of the water with Seltzer or Sparkling Water. My husband thinks this would taste even better with a splash of Vodka.
