This Watermelon Limeade is a super refreshing and delicious kid-friendly drink! This post first appeared on Real Housemoms where I am a contributor.
You guys. The other day someone said to me, “Did you get your house on the market yet?” And then I punched her in the face at my kid’s baseball game.
But you guys. Could listing your house for sale when you have three small children, work 40 hours a week from home, and live with someone who has the organizational skills of a toddler be ANY harder??
So, if you don’t mind me, I’m going to be adding a little tequila to my Watermelon Limeade. #ALLthetequila
So my kids are addicted to watermelon. It disappears from my kitchen literally as I am cutting it. Sometimes I finish cutting the last section, I look up and ALL of it is gone. So when I made this Watermelon Limeade they were totally pumped. Those three little watermelon destroying monsters were totally into this Watermelon Limeade. It’s like lemonade, but way better because . . . . Watermelon. I think that watermelon and lime totally go together perfectly, but if lime isn’t your thing you could replace it with lemon and it will still work beautifully.
And, if you throw some tequila in yours, know that you aren’t alone friend, you aren’t alone.
