Very nice! Tastes like a watermelon soda fixed with club soda. I had some watermelon that was not so great and decided to try this. I mixed the watermelon, sugar and lime juice without the water and stored it in the fridge. Then when ready to drink it, mix 1part watermelon with 1 part club soda. Also found a little extra sugar is good for a less than perfect melon.
i agree that less water should be used if you want a stronger watermelon taste. otherwise, nice and refreshing.
