This beautiful pink lemonade is summer in a glass. It is refreshing, sweet, and has a hint of mint. This pink cocktail is made from chuncks of fresh watermelon pureed with mint simple syrup and lemon juice. If you are not a fan of the herbal flavor of gin, you can substitute with a more neutral spirit like vodka. You can serve this watermelon lemonade in mason jars for a down-home look or in fancy martini glasse. Either way this cocktail is a must-have at your next summer get together.
3/4 cups sugar
