The first step you need to take in order to make Watermelon water is to cut the rind from the watermelon, remove all the seeds and cut it up into small cubes. Chop the watermelon into small cubes so that it is easier to grind later. They don't need to be perfect squares.
Now you have the option of dissolving the sugar to prepare a syrup or mixing it directly. If you prefer to dissolve it, just heat up a cup of water. When it's hot, add the sugar and stir until it's completely dissolved. Then, remove it from the heat and put it aside for later.
Put chunks of watermelon into a bowl with a high rim or a blender. If necessary, do it in two parts. Also add two cups of water and whisk until the watermelon is completely grinded. Add the remaining water and continue whisking.
When you have it, add the dissolved sugar in water that you prepared in step 2 and do not stop whisking until you get the watermelon water. If you have not dissolved the sugar, add it directly and whisk until it is all totally liquid. Add the lemon juice and continue whisking.
When you have all the ingredients well mixed pour the watermelon water into a jug and add some ice so it cools down. Excess water should be kept in the fridge to keep it really cold. As you can see, preparing this refreshing drink is very simple and quick to do. If you want a more liquid result, simply add more water. The same goes with the sugar.
