Make the syrup by placing the sugar, water and zest in a saucepan.

Bring it all to the boil while stirring and stir until the sugar has dissolved.

Remove from the heat and stir in the lemon juice and salt.

Cover and let it infuse until completely cooled down.

Pour through a sieve to remove the lemon peel.

Make sure the seeds are removed, then place a third of the watermelon chunks and lemon syrup in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth and slush-like.

Repeat with the rest of the watermelon and syrup.

Pass it through a sieve to remove any possible watermelon pips.

Serving suggestions:

Serve as a frozen drink or top up with soda water, sparkling wine or spirits as you prefer.

Keep it as a slushy of the mixed watermelon and lemonade or top it up with soda water for more of a cool drink.

Make it festive and top up half a glass of the mix with some bubbly or go the cocktail route and top it up with rum, tequila or vodka.
