Thirsty Thursday

This specific recipe is probably for a larger group, summer get together, or I guess if you like to drink a lot....yourself! It's very summery and refreshing, especially with the fresh lemon and mint sprigs. I would recommend getting a cute pitcher and serving like that!

Watermelonade Mixers
  • 1 {12-pound} watermelon {preferably seedless}
  • 1/4 cup sugar, divided
  • 4 teaspoon fresh lemon juice, divided
  • 16 cups ice cubes, divided
  • 12.7 ounces {Half of a Fifth} of Watermelon Flavored Vodka
  • lemon slices; mint sprigs

  • Cut watermelon flesh into 2-inch chunks and discard rind. Purée one fourth of watermelon in a blender with 1 Tbsp sugar, 1 tsp lemon juice, 4 cups ice, and a pinch of salt. Strain through a fine-mesh sieve into a large bowl, discarding solids. Make 3 more batches. Add the Watermelon Vodka and sugar to taste. Serve over ice.
