I got this recipe from my co-worker Voula from way back when I spent my days at a car dealership answering phones and flirting for free diet Cokes. She made it a lot, except sometimes she would pour some kind of booze in it. I never understood why. It tastes fantastic the way that it is. When she gave me the recipe, she said you could use whatever lemonade concentrate you want. Lemonade, pink lemonade or limeade. I used pink lemonade in this batch.
This is a great way to send off a farewell to summer. Which by the way, I am totally fine with summer being over. Why? Because TV is funny again. Tonight are the premieres for "The Office" and "Parks and Recreation". Tonight I plan on laughing my butt clean off.
8 cups cubed watermelon (that was half of a watermelon for me)
1 12 oz can frozen pink lemonade concentrate
In a blender or a food processor or using an immersion blender, blend up the watermelon until smooth. Pour and press through a strainer, discarding the pulp. Pour watermelon juice into a pitcher and add the pink lemonade concentrate. Stir well to combine.
Yields 2 quarts.
Rookie's Notes: Want to do colored sugar like me? Add some sugar to a plastic container. Squeeze in a few drops of food coloring. Put the lid on the container and then shake it like a Polaroid picture.
