Watermelon has got to be the perfect summer fruit. It's like taking your taste buds for a swim. It also has the perfect texture for making blended summer drinks. This recipe is simple and is delicious both with or without the addition of alcohol.
1 small personal seedless watermelon, chilled
2 small limes, chilled
3 to 4 cups ice
4 shots chilled rum or tequila OR 1 bottle of beer, such as Corona
1. Slice the watermelon, remove the rind, then cut the melon into chunks. Juice the limes.
2. Place the watermelon in a blender along with the lime juice and any alcohol you want to include. Blend till smooth.
3. Add the ice one cup at a time. Use the highest setting to make sure the ice is crushed as fine as possible.
Note: If your blender is really old, like mine, you may just end up with slightly smaller ice cubes. This is fine, too, the beverage just won't be as slushy.
4. Do a taste test. If it's too tart, you can always add sugar or more booze!
5. Serve immediately.
