A tasty watermelon limeade drink should be made whenever we want to enjoy a refreshing drink. This watermelon drink is simple, and you can make it with only three ingredients. I am not kidding you!
We all have a favorite drink for every season. As long as I can purchase watermelon in my local supermarket, I will make this juice. There should not be any restrictions on what we want to eat or drink. Don’t you think so?
Usually, you will find watermelon mixed with lemon juice. This drink has a hint of lemon and is not what you’re thinking of. No, I did not add the zest of the lemon, nor did I blend the skin. The last one would be awful, I think.
I added lime juice instead of lemon juice. I prefer the taste of lime juice instead of lemon juice with watermelon. In my opinion, lime enhances the flavor of the watermelon a heck of a lot more. You can’t argue with taste!
I love eating watermelon. I prefer it cold. When watermelon chunks are cold, they taste more delicious. I usually buy a whole watermelon, cut it up in pieces, place the chunks in a bowl, and then in the refrigerator. I can pick at it all day long!
Did you know that watermelon is full of antioxidants? It also can help you lose weight faster, keeps you hydrated, and contains two known powerful anti-inflammatory agents, amino acids, L-arginine and L-citrulline.
How I come up with those creations, I have no clue. Okay, let’s be frank! Certain types of Alcohol are harmful and are good. I don’t support alcohol drinking at all, and glad no one in my family is an addict. I think we all got disgusted after getting drunk the first time.
We realized that this was not how we wanted to enjoy our lives. In my opinion, having a drink here and there does not hurt, as long as you are not drinking hard liquor. I don’t like hard liquor! I am more of a wine and fruity liquor person. I have heard that a glass of wine most days doesn’t hurt either.
You may have guessed which direction I am going with my watermelon drink. Water is nowhere near my recipe. I prefer drinking my watermelon juice without any sweeteners. But because of the lime juice, I had to add a sweetener. Watermelon does not have a strong taste. So why ruin it with sugar or honey. Unless you are adding lemon or lime juice, I can understand. If I need to add a sweetener, I usually add raw sugar or honey.
This is an excellent combination! Adding limoncello is perfect. A hint of lime juice, a slight taste of alcohol, and a cold drink on a hot summer day. The best!
The recipe for the watermelon limeade
This is another VERY simple recipe. It would be best to have watermelon, juicy limes, and a good limoncello beverage brand. The limoncello does matter!
All you do is blend some chopped watermelon lime juice with the limoncello in your blender till nice and smooth. You may choose to strain your juice. I did not, as there was no need.
No water added! Just pure watermelon juice, freshly squeezed lime juice with a bit of limoncello. Pour it in a glass, add some ice cubes and enjoy.

- 1/2 cup cup fresh lime juice
- 2 –3 tablespoons honey

- Purée watermelon, lime juice, honey and limoncello in a blender until smooth. Add more honey, if desired. Strain if desired. Served over ice.
