Watermelon Limeade – A simple, 3 ingredient drink that is bright and refreshing. Homemade limeade with watermelon mixed in and served over ice.
Oh my goodness, this is one refreshing drink! After making the sparkling watermelon lime spritzer a while back, I just knew that I had to make more drinks with watermelon and lime in it! One of my favorite drinks that I came up with was this watermelon limeade. Perfectly delicious and refreshing!
Made with just 3 ingredients – watermelon, lime juice, and simple syrup – it tastes less than 5 minutes to make. If you don’t have simple syrup on hand, you can always use granulated sugar instead. I suggest tasting it before adding in sugar because the amount you need to put in really depends on how sweet your watermelon is.
