Looking for a refreshing summertime beverage? This simple blended drink using icy watermelon and limeade concentrate is great for picnics, parties or just cooling down on a hot day.
cups 1/2-inch cubes watermelon
cups ginger ale
can (6 oz) frozen limeade concentrate, thawed
Place watermelon cubes in single layer in 1-gallon resealable freezer plastic bag; freeze 8 hours. Let stand at room temperature 15 minutes.
In blender, place half each of watermelon, ginger ale, water and limeade concentrate. Cover; blend on medium speed until smooth. Pour mixture into pitcher. Repeat with remaining ingredients; stir into mixture in pitcher. Serve immediately.
Look for seedless watermelon in the produce department to save having to remove the seeds when cutting the watermelon into cubes.
Garnish each cooler with a lime wedge and fresh mint leaves threaded on a fancy toothpick.
