Cherry Watermelon Slush is a refreshing watermelon drink recipe that will keep you cool all summer. It’s our family’s favorite summer slushie recipe. YUM!
Summer finally arrived here in North Idaho, which means that the weather is super nice. We have the windows open, the yard is looking it’s best & we are spending as much time outside as we can. Over the weekend we whipped up some of our favorite recipes, ribs, slaw, desserts & of course beverages. I like to keep my bevies kid friendly until they head to bed so that I can share with them. Things like copycat recipes from our favorite drive through places usually top our menu when it comes to weekend drinks. You see, cherry limeade is my favorite chiller. So what could make it even better than to add in a little watermelon to give it more slush & a massive taste of summer?! The flavor combination is out of this world! I find myself looking forward to making one almost as soon as I wake up.

That means we broke out the blender & give it a permanent spot on the counter because we made slushies, fizzy drinks & so much more. I absolutely love making fun beverages to cool down during the hot months. Toss a bunch of fruit together with some sort of soda & you have yourself something worth sharing. My family just LOVES it! You see, we spent many years living just outside of Vegas before moving to North Idaho. I created so many recipes all with the mindset of cooling down. It’s all you can do when the heat really sets in. We have not forgotten what that heat can be like. It’s oppressive & sticks around for what seems like forever. Now that we are up here where it’s cooler I still love whipping up some of our favorites like this Watermelon Cherry Limeade. I love it’s simplicity, just 3 ingredients & a couple minutes is all you need. Cool, refreshing & perfect with every sip! Hands down the most delicious beverage around! You absolutely must try it.

Looks and sound delicious! I have a lot of left over watermelon sitting in my fridge at the moment – you have inspired me to do something with it. I can’t make exactly the same as I live in holland an we don’t have these ingredients but I’m sure with this inspiration I can come up with something to make a tasty slush 🙂
