This is my recipe. Be careful with the sugar! Depending on how sweet your watermelon is I would start with 1/4 cup of sugar and taste. Then keep adding sugar until your reach desired sweetness. Enjoy! Read More

This was allright. For someone who doesn't care for watermelon (I keep trying...) to my surprise I liked this better than I thought I would. Having said that I didn't enjoy this enough to ever make again. For all you watermelon lovers out there this is a real treat. Not that my two cents matters (remember I wasn't fond of this...) but I do think the amount of sugar is a tad too much (start with less and add the suggested amount if you still feel the need to). I also think running your mixture through a strainer would be wise (my drink was a little too pulpy for my liking - and I have a VERY powerful KitchenAid blender!!!). Maybe this will float your boat but it just didn't mine. Thanks SB!:-) Read More

Great recipe ... I added Tequila and triple sec (instead of sugar) to the recipe and garnished with very thin slices of cucumber. I was inspired by a similar drink in Las Vegas and the outcome is delish and refreshing! Served these on Fajita night ... out on the patio .... buen provecho! Read More

Such a pretty fresh tasting pleasantly sweet treat! I never had this before and it was a such a nice surprise to find just how darn good this was. No sooner did Hubs down his (and it was quickly too) and he wanted more. And so did I. I did press it through a wire mesh strainer as it was just a little too pulpy for me (maybe it's just my blender) but I followed the recipe for everything else including the fresh mint lime and the amount of sugar which we both found to be the perfect amount. So we had more - and Hubs requested that from now on I make this with Splenda which indicates he plans on drinking a lot of this! Thanks for sharing this delightful treat SB - we couldn't have enjoyed it more. Read More

Very good and refreshing. I used frozen watermelon chunks to make a slushie. And I just tossed everything into the blender including mint and juice from 1/2 lime because I'm basically lazy. My son really loved it. Read More

We made this for a dinner with friends last night and it turned out wonderfully. Not only did it taste great the color was gorgeous and made a nice presentation. I did make a few adjustments per other reviewers suggestions. I only added about 1/4 cup sugar and I strained the watermelon puree as I poured it into the pitcher (it really was quite pulpy).

Yum I've never had one of these. They are very refreshing. My MIL brought a delicious watermelon over for Mother's Day. We ate most of it & I only had about a cup & a half leftover so I decided to try this on a smaller scale. I'm glad I did I really like it thanks! Read More
