This summery watermelon limeade is so delicious and so refreshing. It’s the perfect thirst-quencher on a hot summer’s day. You can control how sweet it is by varying the amount of soda water used – if you like it sweet, use less; if you don’t have a sweet tooth, use more. You can also substitute the soda water with tonic water for some added bitterness.
