Watermelon Strawberry Lime Mocktail

This chilled Watermelon Strawberry Lime Mocktail is an alcohol-free summertime drink that makes the most of seasonal fruit. It's light, satisfying and 100% refreshing!

I don't know about you, but I can't get enough watermelon when it's in season. There's nothing more refreshing than a chilled perfectly juicy watermelon straight out of the fridge. And you may already know how fond I am of fruty mocktails and drinks, especially during the summer, when I'm always enjoying sips like this Strawberry Basil Pineapple Mocktail.

So it naturally made sense to unite my love of watermelon with my love of homemade healthy drinks. I give you a sweet, fruit-packed Watermelon Strawberry Lime Mocktail that tastes like summer in a glass.

How to Make Watermelon, Strawberry and Lime Drinks

The most important part about this recipe is choosing ripe, seasonal fruit. If it's local, even better! It will have the best flavor. I like to chill my watermelon and strawberries before making the mocktail too.

Ingrdient Notes

Here's what you need to make this simple kid-friendly drink:

  • Strawberries. Slice the strawberries so they release their natural juices and flavor better.
  • Watermelon. Cube the melon into equal-sized pieces for easier mashing.
  • Agave syrup. Feel free to omit the agave for a no-sugar-added drink. Or substitute it with honey or bee-free vegan honey.
  • Lime juice. This adds a touch of bright acidity to cut through the sweet fruit flavors.

Tips for Success

Here are my best tips for making this strawberry melon mocktail:

  • Use a large bowl to mash or muddle the fruit. This gives you enough space to avoid splashing. You want to fully break down the berries and watermelon.
  • Use a seedless watermelon if you can find one. Otherwise, you'll want to remove all seeds before mashing the melon.
  • Serve the strawberry watermelon lime mocktail in tall glasses over ice.

Garnishing and Serving

I like to give this simple recipe an elevated feel with a few garnishes on the glasses. I'll fill cocktail glasses with ice, pour in the watermelon and berry drink, and decorate each glass with:

  • A few cubes of watermelon
  • Slices of fresh strawberries
  • A lime wedge

And while you're at it, why not go all the way and add a fun drink umbrella to your homemade mocktails?


You can make this drink ahead of time. It will keep in the fridge for up to two days. Avoid adding ice before storage, which will dilute your mocktail.
