Keep this recipe as well as my Watermelon Salad with Mint Vinaigrette on hand as an alternative way to use up that watermelon this summer, besides devouring it plain of course.
*Note: A delicious third method is to grill cubes of watermelon on skewers, along with pineapple and honeydew melon. Just clean and lightly grease the grill with an oiled paper towel first!
Watermelon Lime Cocktail
2 cups watermelon, cubed
6 ice cubes
¼ cup limeade or lime juice
¼ cup water or lime seltzer water
1-2 oz vodka, tequila or rum (I used coconut rum)
Add watermelon, ice, limeade and water to blender. Blend until smooth. Add alcohol (optional) to glass and pour blended watermelon on top. Garnish with watermelon slice or fresh mint. Enjoy immediately.
