  • 8 cups 1/2-inch cubes watermelon
  • 1 1/2 cups ginger ale
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1 can (6 oz) frozen limeade concentrate, thawed

Steps

  • 1
    Place watermelon cubes in single layer in 1-gallon resealable freezer plastic bag; freeze 8 hours. Let stand at room temperature 15 minutes.
  • 2
    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.
