Cool down this summer with this refreshing and really easy 5 minute watermelon limeade drink recipe. 

So it’s been consistently 95+ degrees in Salt Lake pretty much all summer. My AC broke last week and was just fixed last night… needless to say we’ve been surviving off of watermelon (ya know there literally is a 20# watermelon in my fridge right now) and other fruits all the time. Who else here totally loses their appetite w/ the heat?

While I’ll be the first to admit to the greatness of a fresh, juicy watermelon, they’re usually giant. This one was no exception. I’m pretty sure I’m the only one in my house who eats watermelon, or even produce, so this giant was for me, and me alone. Exciting at first, but reality set in once I cut a cool 1/4 of it and could barely fit it in my largest tupperware. #fail.

What to make with this gargantuan?

Rewind back to the summer after I returned from my study abroad in Spain, it was 2010. I worked at the Sundance Resort deli, a fave job indeed. I heard from my coworkers that the wife of a classic American designer had asked for watermelon juice. We had sandwich fixings, desserts galore, but no melon juice. Upon hearing the “no” she automatically asked for cantaloupe juice. Unfortunately (and not surprisingly) the answer to this request to this was another “no!” oh Hollywood, you’re in the mountains of Utah. She must have been way ahead of her time, at the very very beginning of the juicing craze. Anyways, this and hearing how great watermelon juice lead me to this really great watermelon limeade.
