Watermelon Limeade

20 minutes
Serves 4-6

 With just two ingredients, this Watermelon Limeade is the perfect summer drink to cool down with for the whole family - though adults might want to add a splash of tequila for a Watermelon Margarita-style sip that is perfect to enjoy over lots of ice.


  1.  In a high powdered food processor or blender, working in batches, blitz the watermelon until smooth.

  1. Pass the watermelon juice through a sieve to remove any bits and seeds.

  1. Add the lime juice.

  1. Serve over ice. If you wish to add tequila, add 1 x 15ml shot to a short glass of Watermelon Limeade and stir gently to combine. 

Top tip: Our Italian watermelons should be sweet enough at this time of year to not require any additional sugar, but if you would like a sweeter drink add a sugar syrup made from dissolving a 1:1 ratio of white sugar and water to taste. 


Available in store

  • 1.5kg diced watermelon
  • 200ml freshly squeezed lime juice (from approx. 5-6 limes)
  • Reposado tequila (optional) 
  • Plenty of ice (to serve)
