- 250ml lemon juice (from a bottle or squeeze your own)
- 100g caster sugar
- 1L bottle sparkling water
- 1 Lime, cut into slices
- Small handful mint
- Crushed ice
STEP 1 – Cut the top off the watermelon and hollow it out using a large spoon, fishing out any pips along the way. Mash the flesh through a sieve into a bowl. Put the flesh in a blender (or use a tall jug and hand blender) with the lemon juice and sugar, whizz to a purée, then stir in the sparkling water.
STEP 2 – Heap some ice into the hollowed-out watermelon and fill it with the lemonade mixture. Serve the rest in a jug with the lime slices and mint. Have a bowl of extra crushed ice on the side so people can help themselves.
