This was truly a tasty drink. Thankfully, my local grocer carries fresh watermelon juice. How convenient! Everyone at the party enjoyed it. This will stay on my recipe list. A must try for anyone.

Yum! These are delicious. I didn't bother to strain the watermelon puree and my drinks were a little chunky which I liked. Very refreshing.
