Me and my daughter loved this. Not sure why all the bad reviews. We substituted local honey for sugar and cooked the mint and rind down just a bit longer. I added more lime/lemon juice to taste. I recommend serving really cold. When I made it an adult beverage I added tequila and grand marnier.
Very bad. Don't ever try.
I thought this was really good. I added more lime/lemon juice and omitted the mint. Blogged about it here: http://twirlnextdoor.blogspot.com/2011/07/living-la-aqua-fresca.html p.s. I used seedless watermelon - can't imagine getting the black seeds out. I left the random white seeds in and they blended up fine.
This was tons of work. Not quick and easy. But tasty!
Very good! A lot of work, but will be fun for special occasions. Kind of hard to get all of the watermelon seeds out. The kids really enjoyed it!
