Watermelon Lemonade

Unfortunately, I like this much more than the kids do.  It's a nice thing to have on hand when you want to drink something that feels celebratory but your husband suggests maybe you should NOT make a pitcher of margaritas for a change.  I'm confident once the weather stops being so hot the margarita thing will pass.

Otherwise, I've always wanted to see rancho mirage.  Luckily, when I get back this little pick me up will still be accessible!!

makes 2 large glasses

1/4 cup (2 ounces) fresh-squeezed lemon juice
1/2 cup (4 ounces) fresh watermelon puree, strained through a coarse strainer to remove seeds
3 tablespoons (1 1/2 ounces) simple syrup (i.e. 1 part sugar to one part water, heated to dissolve)
3/4 cup (6 ounces) cold water

Stir it all together and serve over ice.
