WOW! This is like a pitcher of nectar brought upon the earth by a fairy from the heavens! This drink is sooooo good, I can hardly describe it enough in words!! It's a hot sunny day here in Oman today, and the World Cup Cricket match is going on. We have little kids from our building popping into our home for 2 things right now: 1. Quite obvious, to take a peek at the WCC India vs. Kenya match and 2. To drink as much of this lemonade as possible;) They've enjoyed it so much, and they just want more and more! LOL. I've spent the last 2 hours doing this. Haha!! Thank you for posting a great recipe! I really wish you get lots of shining reviews for this one!

This was great! I think! I didn`t have any but my son and friends made it dissappear really fast! With Lots of OooHummmms! I used frozen watermelon! I freeze when watermelon is in season to have smoothies all year. My sons favorite fruit next to raspberries. This will be made again with fresh watermelon in the summer and enjoyed by our outdoor fireplace!

This is delicious! You can use agave nectar instead of the corn syrup and some of the sugar if you want: tastes just the same and won't spike your blood sugar so much.

I halved the sugar and omitted the corn syrup. I also used frozen watermelon cubes for the ice.

Super easy and very refreshing. The texture was great. I did find that it was a tad too sweet for us. I would definately cut back on the amount of sugar, possibly to 1/2 cup and then taste test.I am wondering if some watermelon is possibly sweeter than others naturally?

This is an excellent beverage. The watermelon flavour is well balanced with the lemon juice. It is just sweet enough. We really enjoyed it. Thanks!

I omitted the corn syrup and it was still very sweet. I would cut the sugar by half next time and adjust from there.

I am so glad I picked this! I am not a watermelon lover, but had a lot to use up. I used fresh lemon juice (3/4 cup), honey for the corn syrup, 1 tsp white stevia, and my homemade water kefir (for extra nutrition). Lower sugar, just a bit tart and really refreshing!
