Rita, our innkeeper, is a wonderful cook. She was trying to figure out what to do with half a watermelon we had sitting in the fridge when she came up with this keeper. It is an awesome summer thirst quencher and has the prettiest pink color.
Rita’s WatermelonadeBy Danielle Hanscom Thode of Brampton Inn
- Prepare 1 can of frozen lemonade according to the label. (You should have 64 oz. prepared lemonade)
- Puree: 8 cups of chopped up seeded watermelon and ½ cup sugar
Strain the watermelon through a strainer. This will yield about 4 cups of juice.
Blend prepared lemonade and watermelon juice and pour over ice into tall glasses. Garnish with lime slices.
