Watermelon Wednesdays #4...A refreshing drink

I'll let the photograph do the talking....here's is an absolutely delicious drink recipe from Martha Stewart.

Ingredients:


  • 8 cups chopped seedless watermelon (about 6 pounds)
  • 1/2 cup freshly squeezed lime juice (about 4 limes)
  • 2 tablespoons sugar, plus 2 tablespoons more, if needed
  • 1/2 cup vodka, (optional)
  • Mint leaves

Directions:

  1. Working in batches, puree in blender watermelon with lime juice and sugar until smooth. Add more sugar, if needed.
  2. Transfer puree to a pitcher; add vodka, if desired. Cover; chill until ready to serve.
  3. Stir; pour into tumblers, over ice. Garnish with mint.

    Hope you enjoy!!

Looks tasty! I'll have to pass on the vodka, though. Not allowed to drink with autoimmune diseases :( I bet it is just as good without the vodka! At least that is what I keep telling myself! Hahahaa!

Vodka optional? That's just nonsense! I'll take Dellas. :)

I love all your watermelon posts! There is no more perfect refreshment than an ice cold watermelon on a hot, humid summer day and we get plenty of those!

This sounds so good and I bet it would be wonderful mixed into a pitcher of lemonade too. With the vodka, of course!
