Watermelon Limeade Daiquiris2

While watermelon is a popular summer fruit, watermelon limeade daiquiri is not a common beverage. This recipe will show you how to make a watermelon lemonade daiquiri that is sure to be a crowd delight!

This recipe for watermelon limeade daiquiri uses no added sweeteners, sugars, or honey. The natural sweetness of the watermelon and limeade concentrate provides all the sweetness required.

Key Ingredients:

To make this delicious daiquiri, you will need the following key ingredients:

Organic Watermelon

Organic watermelon juice is sweeter and contains more vitamin A, vitamin C, potassium, and magnesium. Then conventionally grown watermelon.

Frozen Lime Concentrate

Lime concentrate does two things. First, it saves us time, so we do not have to freeze the watermelon. Second, it provides a flavor that brightens and complements the watermelon.

Spiced Rum

Spiced rum is distilled from white sugar and molasses. It also has added caramel coloring and warm spices. Which contributes to its sweet aroma and taste.

Mint

Mint provides a light and refreshing taste. It’s also high in antioxidants which help keep the immune system and prevent inflammation.

Vodka

Vodka is great alcohol because its flavor is subtle. The watermelon and lemon flavors in the recipe can stand out without being overpowered by any other taste.

How do you make a watermelon lemonade daiquiri?

Making watermelon daiquiris at home is much easier than finding a daiquiri shop that’s near you.

In a food blender add the watermelon, blitz on high for 30 seconds. You should have 2 cups of watermelon juice.  Add the frozen lime concentrate, mint, spiced rum, vodka, and ice. Blitz on high for 30 seconds. Evenly divide daiquiris amongst 6 cups, garnish with a mint sprig, lime slice, frozen watermelon ball and straw, serve immediately. 

How do you make a non-alcoholic daiquiri?

To make a non-alcoholic daiquiri omit the rum and vodka. You will still have a thirst-quenching delish drink that the whole family can enjoy. You can add lemon or lime juice in place of the alcohol.

Frequently Asked Questions

Here are answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about making watermelon daiquiri:

How do you pick a ripe watermelon?

Picking the perfect watermelon can seem like a shot in the dark. To pick the perfect watermelon every time, there are a few key things to look for.

Watermelon should have a hard rind. The watermelon is ripe when it has a yellow belly. When you find one like this, go ahead and buy it!

Do not pick a watermelon that has a white belly or no color on the belly. The watermelon is not ripe and will leave you disappointed by the lack of sweet watermelon flavor.

When is watermelon season?

Watermelons are harvested in July or August, so they will be fully matured by the time you find them on store shelves in September or October.

Look for watermelons that are plump, heavy for their size, and have a yellow belly.

Watermelon seeds are full of benefits the human body needs, like magnesium, copper, and potassium in only one cup of seeds.

All of these minerals contribute to stronger bones and improves bone health from the minerals in them.
