"Easy to make with things normally on hand. I, too, would use more watermelon and ice and less lemonade. (Maybe frozen watermelon?) Needed stronger watermelon flavor."

"Excellent summer beverage! After I pureed the watermelon I ran it through a fine mesh strainer and removed the watermelon pulp. I served this as an adult beverage so did not mix all the ingredients together, but rather mixed a glass at a time. I used 2 frozen watermelon cubes, 1 ounce of watermelon vodka, 1 ounce of carbonated beverage ( ginger-ale or lemon-lime soda). 2 ounces of Simply Lemonade and then topped of the "rocks" glass with the watermelon juice. It was a winner with my guests!"

"In place of the lemonade I used a lemonade vodka and frozen watermelon in place of the ice. After blending it...not using 2 cups of vodka!! I added sparkling lemonade. I'm not sure if the watermelon I used just wasn't sweet enough but it sounded better than it tasted"

"Very good. I would add more watermelon. The kids loved it in hurricane glasses for the taste of the tropics.

A splash of tequila in a hurricane glass makes it a pleaser for the adults! Makes you feel like you want to be sippin' these in a hammock ...poolside."

"It was good, but the lemonade- Simply Lemonade- was stronger than the watermelon. Next time I will use more watermelon."

"Really good! I had to add more watermelon, too because the lemonade flavor was overpowering. We also found this is a great 'adult' drink with a little vodka!"
