Watermelon Lime Juice

For the last couple weeks in LA, we’ve been blessed with some pretty great weather. The heat wave finally broke, making room for weekends filled with hikes, gloriously bad sunburns tans and lazy Saturday mornings lounging on the balcony with the roommate.

This Saturday, Marta and I decided it was time we gave our balcony some much-needed TLC. After we finished quickly sweeping, dusting and decluttering, we sat down to enjoy our freshly brewed coffee and freshly pruned herb garden. (It’s been six weeks and counting since we first planted our herb garden, and we’ve only managed to kill off two plants. Success?) It was quite the perfect way to kick off summer. The only thing that was missing was the summer fruit. Give me a juicy peach or a watermelon wedge (or five) and this girl would have been in heaven.

Kick off your summer the right way with this drink recipe. Not only is it easy to make, it’s an extremely refreshing and healthy way to satisfy your thirst on those hot summer days. This recipe is versatile too. Just add some alcohol (preferably vodka) into the mix for a wonderfully fresh summer cocktail. I hope you enjoy this drink as much as we did.

Cheers!
