Juicy Fruit [Fierce Foodie]
I love watermelon, and ever since they have come out with seedless varieties, I no longer have to fear that I will swallow a seed and grow one in my stomach. Many recipes for watermelon drink tell you to add sugar, which I think is unnecessary if the melon is ripe and sweet. Knock on your watermelon. If it sounds hollow, it is probably a winner. Another variation: watermelon combined with lemonade leaves you utterly refreshed. Just the thing on a hot day!
8 cups cubed seeded watermelon (about 6 pounds with rind)
1 and ½ cup water or 2 cups lemonade
Lime slices or mint for garnish
1) Combine half the watermelon and half the water or lemonade in a blender; puree. Pour through a coarse strainer into a large container. Repeat with the remaining watermelon and water. Refrigerate until well chilled, about 4 hours.
2) To serve, garnish with lime or mint leaves. Yield: 10 cups.
