1/2 seedless watermelon, cubed 1 ounce freshly squeezed lemon juice 2 ounces simple syrup 4 ounces watermelon vodka 2 ounces Malibu rum with mango liqueur 2 cups mango lemonade
In a food processor puree watermelon with the lemon juice until smooth. Press through mesh sieve. Discard pulp. Pour juice into pitcher. Should measure about 1 to 1 1/4 cups.
Add simple syrup, vodka, rum and mango lemonade. Stir well and refrigerate until very cold. If you don't have time to refrigerate it, simply pour into a cocktail shaker filled 2/3 with ice cubes and shake until very cold.
To serve, pour into 16 ounce tumblers filled with ice and garnish with a rind on watermelon piece.
For simple syrup - In a small saucepan combine 1 cup sugar and 3/4 cup water. Over medium-low heat stir until sugar is dissolved and liquid is clear. Cool and store in an airtight container in the fridge. I use plastic squeezy bottles so my simple syrups are always on hand for my latest creation.
This can be made non-alcoholic by omitting the alcohol and topping with sparkling water or lemon-lime soda.
