Watermelon Lemonade

Tonight was the annual Salad Days event, for my local Alpha Chi Omega Alumnae chapter, everyone is asked to bring a salad, snack or drink to share and traditionally we find ourselves around the pool relaxing, talking, etc..
This year due to weather we found ourselves inside. This did not stop us from talking, catching up, sharing stories, etc..
I turned to Pinterest for inspiration, and Found myself here, and decided I just had to try the Watermelon Lemonade


 My adorable Crate and Barrel Pitcher had a crack in it, and could not be used. (insert pouting face here) and while I want to run out and replace it, I logged onto our wedding registry to add it, and am going to try my best to put it out of my mind.

Watermelon Lemonade
Yields: 12 servings

Sugar Syrup:
2 cups water
2 cups sugar
Lemonade:
2 cups water
2 cups freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
4 cups ice cubes
2 cups diced watermelon
Mixed diced fruit of your choice (such as apples, pears or strawberries)
1 orange, preferably organic, sliced into rounds
1 lemon, preferably organic, sliced into rounds
1 lime, preferably organic, sliced into rounds
To make sugar syrup: Combine the water and sugar in a medium saucepan. Turn the heat to medium-high and boil for 10 minutes. If you are planning to make the lemonade immediately, place 2 cups of the sugar water in the freezer or refrigerator while you do the rest of the prep. (The recipe makes about 2 cups syrup. When stored in a tightly sealed glass jar, sugar syrup keeps indefinitely in the refrigerator).

To make the lemonade: Mix 2 cups of sugar syrup, watermelon, lemon juice, and lime juice in a big bowl or pitcher. Add the ice cubes, diced watermelon and other fruit. Add the orange, lemon, and lime rounds. Stir well and chill until icy cold.
