Happy National Watermelon Day + Recipe!

Did you know it was National Watermelon Day?

For me, nothing says summer like a plump, juicy watermelon. And nothing says Happy National Watermelon Day more than a Watermelon Lemonade Spritzer!


 1 (6-pound) seedless watermelon, cut into 1-inch chunks (about 8 cups)

1 can (12 oz) frozen lemonade concentrate

1 can (12 oz) pink lemonade concentrate

Chilled seltzer/club soda

Limes for garnish


  1. Puree watermelon, in batches, in blender until smooth. Pour into a 2-quart pitcher. Stir in lemonade concentrates until completely melted. Cover; refrigerate overnight.
  2. When ready to serve, fill 10-ounce glasses with ice cubes and 1/2 cup of the watermelon mixture; top with seltzer or club soda and garnish with lime slices.
