I love this as an unusual cool drink. I don't like it too sweet, so if you want to add more sugar, cool. But I think that this recipe is perfect.


Serves: 8 

  • 2 cups (500ml) water
  • 3/4 cup (185g) white sugar
  • 1 sprig rosemary, leaves (about 10cm long) stripped and chopped
  • 2 cups lemon juice
  • 1 medium watermelon, seeded and cubed
  • 8 cups ice cubes

Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:1hour  ›  Ready in:1hour15min 

  1. Bring the water and sugar to a boil in a small saucepan over high heat. Stir in the rosemary, and set aside to steep for 1 hour.
  2. Place half of the lemon juice, and half of the watermelon into a blender. Strain the rosemary syrup through a mesh strainer into the blender. Cover, and puree until smooth. Strain into a jug, then puree the remaining lemon juice and watermelon. Refrigerate till cold. Stir the drink before serving over ice.
