Cool drink for a warm Memorial Day weekend!

I just HAD to post this recipe! I have been looking and looking for a fun and festive cool drink for summer entertaining. Or, to just enjoy on your deck with your hubby.. wink,wink! This is what I came up with! Let me know if any of you try it! Yummmo!


what you will need: 4 cups watermelon, blended in the blender, seeds removed

2 oz. lemonade concentrate in the can, thawed

2 T. lemon juice

1 c. vodka (optional)

2 oz. melon liqueur

lemon zest to garnish


Pour the blended and pureed watermelon into empty ice cube trays and freeze.

In the blender, combine the frozen watermelon cubes, lemonade concentrate, lemon juice, vodka, and melon liqueur; blend until smooth. Pour into 4 martini glasses and garnish each with a sprinkle of lemon zest. note: I froze the glasses before hand too. the drinks stayed colder and firmer longer. :)
Now, you can make this a "PG" drink by omitting the vodka, of course! But, after a hot day of entertaining the relatives... you may need that vodka, Ha! Have a great weekend ladies!!!
