Watermelon Lime Spritzer

posted on: Saturday, June 28, 2014


I grew up in LA, my mom used to take me to Downtown LA to pick out fabrics for sewing and crafting projects. We spent some beautiful and sunny days down there, as she taught me all about how to tell the difference of quality of textiles and trim. My mom is a class act, and most of my favorite memories of life have surrounded her and her great influence on me. One association I have with those special days downtown, is watermelon spears with lime and cayenne pepper in Ziploc bags. There are local vendors who have large coolers stuffed full of watermelon, mango, and cucumber with lime and cayenne lining the streets outside Micheal Levine's. My mom & I would pick up a bag or two and share some fruit & enjoy the satiating taste and perfect combination of flavor. Its one of those taste combinations that takes you to an exact time and place, and anyone who knows me-knows I love memories.

Servings: 4

2 cups of Seedless Watermelon
1/8 cup of Lime Juice
1/2 can of Lemon La Croix
Handful of Ice {my handful is generous because I LOVE it slushie}
1 tsp of Cayenne

Blend on Low for maybe 5 Seconds and you have yourself an incredibly perfect summer drink. This would be very low budget for a party drink, and one watermelon would yield for quite a number of people. Tasty & cost effective is a total win in my book. 


Happy Summer,
