Watermelon Lime Lemonade

1 pound lemons

1 pound limes

~8 cups watermelon, cubed

6 Tbsp sugar

2 cups seltzer water

Zest and juice the lemons and limes.  Put the watermelon into a large bowl and add the juice.  Dice the zest as small as you can and add 1 tablespoon of each type into the bowl.  Add in the sugar and mix.  Either use an immersion blender right in the bowl or use a blender to liquefy the mixture. I like for it to have a little bit of texture, but if you are looking for straight liquid, you should put it through a cheesecloth or strainer now.

Transfer to a large pitcher.  You can store it like this, and then add the seltzer right before serving.  Serve cold with ice.  And with vodka if you would like.
