    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.

    So glad I found this recipe...I tried the watermelon flavor at the LA Zoo-ever since then I have craved juice that is so tasty and refreshing. Your recipe is just like I remember, and now my whole family can enjoy it, I always make a gallon at a time and its goes fast! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

    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!
