      I made this over the weekend which was particularly hot. It was VERY refreshing, and perfectly sweet & tart from the lime. I acidentally purchased a yellow watermelon- I didn't know such a thing existed, but the taste was the same as a regular watermelon and the drink came out great. Thanks so much for posting.

      My family really enjoyed this. And as you may be able to tell from the photo - they enjoyed the pulp and requested that I not strain it. Since it is May when we're trying this the melons are not like the sweet ones from later in the summer so we might add a bit more sugar depending on the sweetness of the fruit. Thanks for a refreshing summer drink FloridaNative. Made for Ali Baba's Babes for ZWT5.

      Refreshing and I'm sure it would kill a thirst in hot days. I found it bitter/sour like it needed more sugar. Made for Team Cooks With Dirty Faces" for ZWT5
