Yup. It’s exactly what it says – a wonderful blend of watermelon juice and lemonade.

Cool and fresh and just the thing to sip in the shade when the sun is blazing.

If, like us, you have to balance familiar tastes with a slightly adventurous spirit you can create ‘his and hers’ versions like I did.

He has the classic watermelonade and I have the same with a splash of vanilla. Delightful and yet, individual. How wrong can you go with that?

Lemonade doesn’t always have to look like, well, lemonade. Does it?

Watermelonade : When life gives you watermelons....

Watermelonade : When life gives you watermelons….


3 cups fresh watermelon juice

2 cups classic lemonade (made with sugar)

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

lots of ice



  1. Mix it all together.
  2. Pour into tall glasses. Top with ice.
  3. Pick a favourite book and retreat to the garden on a hot summer’s day.

Number 3 is actually wishful thinking on my part. Sunny days in the garden are usually spent with me trying to dodge the football being kicked around by the boys and turning a deaf ear to the pleas to join in.

This post is part of the Bar-A-Thon for the prompt ‘Wishful thinking’.

    Watermelonade sounds exotic, yet it is simple isn’t it! Love the vanilla twist to it!

    Does sound the perfect drink for a hot sunny day. Must try it. For now it’s pouring and I’m looking forward to something warmer.
