Watermelon Cooler

Watermelon lemonade

Here’s a refreshing change for a summertime drink that uses icy cold watermelon and limeade concentrate. Allow enough time to freeze the watermelon prior to preparing beverage.

INGREDIENTS:

1 small watermelon, cut into 1/2-inch cubes watermelon (8 cups)
1 1/2 cups ginger ale
1/3 cup water
1 can (6 oz) frozen limeade concentrate, thawed

METHOD:

Cut watermelon into cubes, discarding any seeds. Place watermelon cubes in 1-gallon resealable freezer plastic bag and place on small baking sheet. Arrange cubes into one layer and place in freezer. Freeze 8 hours.

When ready to make the beverage, remove frozen watermelon chunks from freezer and allow to stand at room temperature 15 minutes.

In blender, place HALF of each watermelon, ginger ale, water and limeade concentrate. Cover and blend on medium speed until smooth. Pour mixture into pitcher. Repeat with remaining ingredients and stir into mixture in pitcher. Serve immediately.
