Having bought an over ripe and slighly mushy watermelon(by accident), my kids and I used this recipe to make something unbelieveable out of it. The recipe is easy enough that my 7, 8 and 9 year olds were able to help with the measuring of the ingredients, and with having to divide the water and sugar there were plenty of turns for everyone to help. The lime juice is a must and really makes the drink. We rimmed our glasses with sugar making it an extra special afternoon treat.

This refreshing drink is served by roadside vendors all over Mexico. Not too much fruit, not too much sugar, just a beautiful way to quench your thirst on a summer day.

Halved the recipe for five people and added a spring of fresh mint to the pitcher. Everyone at my ladies' summer luncheon loved it. I whisked it before serving as the watermelon puree will settle upon standing too long.
I made this the day before for a girls night I was having! Everyone loved it! I will definitely make it again!!
Totally delish! Loved this drink! I had to make without lime juice because I didn't have any on hand, but it still tasked very delicious! Also, next time, I'm trying sweetner instead of sugar, but the sugar still wasn't a large amount! Try it!
