A healthy lemonade chilled with a patriotic glow

(Continued)

Transfer all of the trays to the freezer and freeze until solid, preferably overnight.

In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine the sugar and water. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the sugar is dissolved. Let cool.

In a pitcher, combine 1/2 cup of the sugar syrup with the lemon juice. Add 3 cups of cold water, then taste and add additional sugar syrup if desired. Chill until ready to serve.

To serve, place 2 watermelon cubes, 2 blueberry cubes and 1 coconut cube in each of 6 rocks glasses. Top the glasses with lemonade, then garnish with mint. Let sit for 10 or so minutes to allow the cubes to melt slightly and flavor the lemonade.
