      Ok, I was searching for "favorite summer drinks" thread and didn't find one, but I think this is good enough! I'm going to a BBQ tomorrow and was thinking to bring something delicious and this is perfect!!

      Alys - how many people do you think this serves? There will probably be 10-15 people at the BBQ, possibly more, possibly less. But obviously, not everyone will drink this. Do you think making just 1 recipe is enough? I might have to make it tonight, so I can "test" it out.

      Oh and how much liquid does it make? I'm wondering how I will transport it since the BBQ is like 30 mins away...

        This sounds delicious! I saw something similar on Semi Homemade where they hollowed out the watermelon, balling it, and poured the drink back into the shell, using the watermelon balls as garnish. Sounds like a pain in the butt but pretty cool.

            I did and I didn't love it. It was good, but something was off. I tested it out with a few different things (club soda, selzter, none, etc) and I just couldn't get it right. It's not that it was BAD, something was just missing.

              Hmmm... I printed the ingredients and I'm giving it to bartender Steve. Let's see how he fairs. He likes to make drink concoctions and surprisingly he's pretty good at it. I worried if the watermelon juice would be strong enough to mask the vodka. It's hard for me to drink vodka since I've thrown it up so much. HA! I'm classy.

                yummy!! my brother (a bartender) made watermelon martinis for our gym pool party and they were a hit. i was not drinking the month of June (after we got back from jamaica i swear my blood was pure rum) so did not get to try the adult version.

                if it weren't sunday i would go get the vodka and make this now! it sounds so refreshing!

                    Wow - that sounds so good! Shame the weather here in the UK has decided to turn to winter!
