1-6 lb seedless watermelon
½ cup lime juice
½ cup cold water
¼ cup simple syrup


Scoop out the watermelon flesh directly into a food processor. Pulse, working in batches if necessary, until all of the watermelon is pureed.

Strain the watermelon puree through a wire mesh sieve into a large pitcher.

Stir in the lime juice, water and simple syrup. Refrigerate until cold, about 1 hour.

My thoughts:

You’ve had lemonade, limeade, and maybe even orangeade—but have you had watermelonade? This thirst quencher gets its flavor and beautiful pink hue from seedless watermelon. I like to make it with a hefty dose of freshly squeezed lime juice to cut the sweetness a bit. If you like it sweet, decrease the amount of lime juice and add additional water to make up the difference. It is a fun change from the typical soft drink, try it at your next cookout, barbecue, crab feast or picnic!
