The other day I bought some watermelon juice and it was such a big hit with everyone that I quickly realized I should have purchased three cartons instead of one.

I did not buy a watermelon, so of course, we all wanted some, despite the ice cream (three kinds), waffle cones, cherry cheesecake, cherry and apple pie we had on hand (One of the perks, or perhaps disadvantages, of testing recipes).

I went searching through my recipes and found several good ideas for using fresh watermelon. I especially like the beverages and I hope you will find something to your liking, too. Anything to help us cool off would be great. Stay safe and stay cool!

Watermelon lime agua fresca
