Drink some Melon.

Just in time for the 4th of July! Delicious drink recipes.

Watermelon Lemonade
I found this on Good Life {Eats}

Small Seedless watermelon 15ish cups. (I used about half, but a whole would work too)
Two 12 oz cans of Lemonade concentrate
Cut up Watermelon in cubes and blend in blender strain through fine mesh strainer if you have one, or don’t like pulp. Add melted Lemonade concentrate and wisk together. Serve chilled. Makes about a two-liter pitcher.

This is kind of tart and strong; (but so refreshing) I would cut this in half and add water to dilute it some, which would make two 2-liter pitchers of the lemonade. Perfect for a party.

Sparkling alternative: Add Sprite to dilute the mixture.

Slushy Watermelon Mint Mojito
I found this in Southern Living

5 cups cubed seeded watermelon
1 cup sparkling water, chilled (or Sprite…. Again)
3/4 cup white rum
1/4 cup chopped fresh mint
1 (6-ounce) can frozen limeade concentrate, undiluted
Mint sprigs (optional)
Lime slices (optional)

Arrange watermelon in a single layer on a baking sheet; freeze 2 hours or until completely frozen.

Combine frozen watermelon, sparkling water, rum, mint, and limeade in a blender; process until smooth. Garnish with mint sprigs and lime slices, if desired. Serve immediately.

Quick and Easy Watermelon Mint Mojito:
Add Rum and crushed mint to sparkling Watermelon Lemonade.

Until Next Time, Drink Responsibly and all that.
