How do you cut a watermelon for lemonade?
The most time consuming part of this recipe is prepping the watermelon. You’ll need to slice off the rind and cut off each end. If you have a sizable watermelon this can be a bit of a project. Better to get 2 smaller ones which will make the cutting a bit more manageable.
Once you remove the rind, you’ll end up with a large Easter egg looking mass of watermelon.
This will make it really easy to slice and then cut into cubes.
So that you can whirl it up in the blender. After that you are home free!
Can you make watermelon lemonade ahead of time?
Yes! In fact I think watermelon lemonade is even better if you can make it a day ahead or least a few hours ahead. It will allows the flavors o marry and for your lemonade to become nicely chilled.
