This was very nice and very refreshing. My kids LOVED it but I found it a bit too sweet and would probably add only one tablespoon of sugar next time. A much healthier alternative to cordial or long-life packaged fruit juice.

Yummy! I used less water and sugar and more lime in mine. Very fresh tasting!

A HUGE success! To tell the truth, I didn't expect such a wonderful fruity depth of flavor. It is astonishingly refreshing. Perhaps just a little sweet for my taste. Next time I will reduce the sugar a bit and increase the lime juice. It has my highest recommendation! The layering effect after chilling for several hours was interesting too.

Fantastic recipe! Very light and refreshing. I pureed all of the watermelon, left out the seeds because it was a seedless watermelon and used 1/8 of a cup less sugar. Perfect! Thanks for posting the recipe.

Slurplicious! I have made this now with watermelon and honey dew, always great. I halved the sugar and tripled the lime juice. Depends on the sweetnes of the melon also. They are very sweet here in Crete at the moment.

I had never even heard of this drink before I tried it. I did not find it too sweet but I did think more lime was better. I made a half recipe and I drank the whole thing! Thanks for a great recipe. Next time I will make enough for my family to try!

Cant believe I forgot to review this. I made this for a Mexican themed dinner party years ago and people are STILL raving about it! I've made it a few times since and will be making it again!

I am very glad to find a recipe to use up what watermelon my family didn't eat. This recipe was very easy, fast, and good. I wasn't sure my dh would like it, but he did enjoy it. It is refreshing and considering the heat we have been having, a welcome addition to the table. Thanks for giving me another way to use one of my favorite fruits! = )
