Minty watermelon limeade with blueberries
Whenever I cut into a watermelon, the first thing I notice is how pretty and vibrant the shade of red is. It's this very color that turns regular old limeade into a party. Then add some blueberries to the mix and let the festivities begin. I especially like the hint of mint and melon mixed in with the familiar taste of lime. This limeade is almost too pretty to drink. OK, maybe it's not that pretty.
