I made these for our 4th of July BBQ for two reasons. I wanted a red drink for the holiday and something fruity. This drink was good but a bit to tart for my taste. I added a little more simple syrup when I made these. My watermelon wasn't very sweet so that may have been the issue. I did strain the pulp as someone suggested but next time I don't think I will do that or I will strain some of it but not all of the pulp. I suspect this drink would also taste good made with other melons. Read More

I did make some changes and it was delish! I had left over watermelon and the juice so I cubed the watermelon and froze it and the juice in ice trays eliminated the ice and put all in the blender! One tray of frozen cubes and 6 cubes of the frozen juice makes 2 large drinks! Read More

In a word - Delicious though I used vodka as another reviewer did. I don't enjoy rum. We enjoyed it so much we're going to do a brunch for friends and feature this drink Read More

This is an excellent summertime drink. Watch out though; it's hard to taste the alcohol! I think my shaker is on the small side so I had a little trouble fitting all of the ingredients. I just didn't completely fill it with ice and it was fine. Read More

We found this to be a bit sweet with rum so we changed the alcohol to vodka and liked it much more. Too be fair I didn't have enough fresh lime juice to put the full 1 ounce in each drink...that may have cut the sweetness...so I squeezed 1/4 of a lime into each glass and muddled it with fresh mint from my garden. With my changes we liked this recipe enough to give it 4 stars. A nice summertime cocktail that assisted us in using up some leftover watermelon. Read More
