Watermelon Jalapeno Limeade

According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, watermelon quenches thirst, relieves irritability, and detoxifies. Balance that with a little hot pepper, often considered an aphrodisiac, and add a touch of lime (and/or lemon) to replenish body fluids, and you have yourself a sexy drink.

4 cups cubed seedless watermelon
2 seeded limes and/or lemons (adjust to taste)
