This WATERMELON LIMEADE is a super refreshing and delicious kid-friendly drink!
This Watermelon Limeade is totally perfect for summer! My kids are super addicted to watermelon, they can easily plow through a watermelon in one afternoon. Which seems totally crazy to me because they are three tiny little people. And yet, it happens every single time. One minute I have a whole watermelon and then next minute I turn around and there are rinds and small children covered in pink.
So those three little watermelon destroying monsters were totally into this Watermelon Limeade. It’s like lemonade, but way better because . . . . Watermelon. I think that watermelon and lime totally go together perfectly, but if lime isn’t your thing you could replace it with lemon and it will still work beautifully.
I also think that next time I make this I’m going to have them help. It’s easy, and totally a kid-friendly recipe for throwing together.
And if you are a mom at home with your kids all summer, I won’t judge you if you throw in some vodka 😉
