Summer sweet summer! Long summer days filled with lots of hot, sunny, summery fun! And nothing screams summer more than fresh, sweet watermelon!
This is a wonderful base drink, with little or no sugar added, depending on the sweetness and full flavor of your watermelon and your personal taste. You can also substitute other fresh summer fruits to make flavor combinations of your own choosing - peaches, strawberries, raspberries - whatever floats your boat!
I still use my trusty blender to grind up the ice and pull this flavorful and thirst-quenching summer drink together, but if I'm doing this for a crowd, I use my Margaritaville Frozen Concoction Maker instead - placing the fruit and lemonade in the pitcher, and letting the maker crush and add just the right amount of ice. It works well either way you want to mix up a batch.
And now I need to run...there's a hammock under a shady tree calling my name!

I made this for my family at our family reunion and everyone loved it. It was amazing how refreshing and tasty it was, and the glasses were frosty just like your photos. VERY DELICIOUS! Thanks for sharing this great idea!
