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!!!


  1. Mix 'em up and I'll be right over! We're on Day Two of 90º and humid here in Maine ... and this sounds perfect!

    Stay cool, my sweet friend....

  2. Is it bad that my mouth is watering!? That looks great!

  3. Sounds good to me..Lets start that blender..Have a great Memorial Day weekend..

  4. Ok, I am not a drinker but I could have really used the non-PG drink about two hours ago!

    Sounds de-lish!

  5. Perfect drink to tide us over until it is cool enough for Chai!

    I would do the same thing.... keep that scarecrow out. Maybe he will bring us an early fall!
