"Made half the recipe and made as posted. This is so refreshing! I love watermelon and the lime juice is the perfect touch. The 1 tablespoon sugar was just the right amount. Thanks for sharing Nif. Made for Choose Your Event Party."
"mmm, I tried this recipe today and it was supper yummy. I will definitely be using this recipe again. The only thing I did different is I didn't strain it. The pulp is the best part."
"This is so refreshing! The flavours work together very nicely and this really brightens up a hot day. I also agree with Kim127 that the colour is stunning. Thank you so much for a lovely new way to use watermelon!"
"So cool and refreshing. Really like the lime under tones. Thanks so much for the post."

"Love watermelon, so knew I would love this. Only change I made was to use key lime juice. I'll have to make again, darn!, using regular lime juice to see which is better. Nevertheless, thnx so much for posting, Nif. Made for ZWT5"
"A refreshing summertime drink. I have now made this twice and think that it is much better after being allowed to chill completely in the refrigerator. Made for *ZWT 5*"
"Healthy substitute for sugary juices, and whole family drank until the last drop. This is so yummy! Will make with more lime next time."
"Just came across the recipe and realized I never reviewed it, although I've made it several times. We LOVE this during the summer months. It has the perfect combination of watermelon and lime and just the right amount of sugar. Perfect recipe. Thanks for posting!"
"I love Agua Fresca's of every kind and always have them on hand in the summer, this one is lovely, light and refreshing. The fresca is slightly sweet with a heavy watermelon flavor. It was just perfect for this hot humid day. Thank you for posting this recipe Nif. Made for the Fearless Red Dragons - ZWT8 - Mexico"
"Very refreshing, used agave syrup instead of suger. I tried it both ways, with the pulp and without. Imagine the juice would make a nice cocktail."
"Great refreshing drink for a hot summer afternoon. I had some of this for breakfast this morning. The lime and the watermelon do go well together, it kind of gives the watermelon depth. I might try adding a little more lime next time. :) It was delicious! Thanks Nif for sharing this recipe. Made for ZWT5."
"Hola from my kitchen where we had a Mexican fiesta for dinner tonight. Una quÃ© bebida de restauraciÃ³n maravillosa. This was an excellent drink. The lime beautifully accented the watermelon and helped to put out the fires from the rest of our spicy meal. I can see a shot of Tequila in this for an adult drink ; ) Gracias Encargado definido. Hecho para ZWT 5 para la regiÃ³n de MÃ©xico. For Team zaar Chow Hounds"
