Watermelon Lemonade

Promote your children’s hands-on learning by helping them open a neighborhood lemonade stand. Refresh yourself and your neighbors by featuring something slightly different – Watermelon Lemonade from Whole Foods Market.

This beautifully colored sipper automatically elevates your neighborhood lemonade stand. Be sure to taste the watermelon first. If it’s very sweet, reduce the sugar. Serves 16.
