    About this recipe: 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.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 8 

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

    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 pitcher, then puree the remaining lemon juice and watermelon. Refrigerate till cold. Stir the lemonade before serving over ice.
