This Watermelon Limeade Cocktail is absolutely DELICIOUS and oh-so refreshing. Watermelon Limeade CocktailI’ve been wanting to make a new, fun cocktail recipe because while the Clayton’s Margarita recipe will always be my #1…it’s still fun to shake things up a bit. Because it’s summertime and the watermelon is ripe and ready to be eaten, why not drink it, too? This watermelon limeade cocktail is easy to make, and wayyy to easy to drink. In fact, sipping on it reminds me of sucking on a watermelon-flavored jolly rancher — which I am NOT MAD about! 

Watermelon Limeade Cocktail

To keep this refined sugar-free I opted to use monk fruit sweetener. If you’ve never used monk fruit sweetener, it’s one of my new favorites for baking and sweetening things up. I love it because it tastes very similar to sugar! I opted to make a simple syrup here using monk fruit rather than cane sugar because monk fruit sweetener also contains zero net carbs, zero calories, and is zero-glycemic! Making this the perfect, better-for-you cocktail in the summer sun!! 

Throw it all in the blender, blend away and serve on ice. Cheers!

Watermelon Limeade Cocktail

Prep: 10 minutes
Servings: 4


Monk Fruit Simple Syrup

  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup monk fruit sweetener *you can sub regular sugar if you don't have monk fruit. Don't sub coconut sugar.

Watermelon Jolly Rancher Cocktail

  • 2 cups watermelon, cut into cubes about 1/4 large watermelon
  • 1 cup vodka I like Tito's
  • 1/2 cup fresh lime juice
  • mint, for garnish


Make the Monk Fruit Simple Syrup:

  • In a small sauce pan, add the water and monk fruit sugar and whisk to combine. Bring sugar mixture to a boil, whisking until sugar is dissolved. Once boiling, immediately remove from heat and let cool.

Make the Cocktail!

  • In a blender, combine the watermelon cubes, vodka, lime juice and 1/2 cup of the simple syrup. Blend until smooth. Serve over ice and garnish with mint!
    *P.S. I know you still have 1/2 cup of leftover simple syrup to use. Odds are, you'll need it for the second batch!

    1. You will pour the drink over ice so the watermelon does not need to be frozen. But if you want a blended frozen cocktail, you could definitely try it with frozen watermelon! I just have not tried it that way myself.

    Made this recipe for a girls night, and what a hit! We all loved it and I appreciated the simple ingredients. And it was the perfect blend of refreshing, tart, and not too sweet. Will definitely be making this again!!
