Seeing as we were going Carolina-style for our Fourth, we made some good ol' fashioned watermelonade. Sure, there were some bottles of Sancerre knocking around but they were swiftly displaced by some bottles of beer, courtesy of my intervening other half. Who can blame him?
For the watermelonade, just hack a watermelon to pieces and blend it with a squeeze of lemon, a tiny bit of sugar and a handful of mint. Sieve. Serve over ice. Perhaps add vodka. It tastes just like summer should.
