    Does this last in the fridge for awhile?

    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.

    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.

    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!

    This is so nice and summer-y -- a really nice and fresh change of pace. I think the lime juice is perfect in it.


I love great food and I particularly like trying cuisines new to me! Although I don't prepare as much food as I used to, creating in my kitchen is still one of my favourite things to do. Enjoy!
