Recipe Notes

Freshly squeezed lemon juice is best for Watermelon Lemonade but you could use storebought lemon juice in a pinch. 

For freshly squeezed lemon juice, make sure the lemons are at room temperature then rub them to release their juices before squuezing. Be sure to get all of the juice out of the lemons.
