Cheers!

Lenorenevermore gave her readers such a great recipe for a watermelon cocktail  in her "Americana" post.
As a matter of fact, when I read her post, I kept two watermelons in a refrigerator. (one I bought from the shop and the other my neighbor kindly brought me on the same day)
Wow, such a nice timing that I ran into Lenore's blog on a watermelon cocktail.
I wanted to make a watermelon cocktail out of simple drive that I wanted to get the space back from two large watermelons in the refrigerator. Following Lenorenevermore's recipe, I cut a watermelon into small pieces taking seeds away as many as possible then put them in freezer. Then put them into a Cuisinart to blaze and it did a beautiful job. I added lime juice, sparkling water and next I should add a shot of gin!!! I stopped. Where is it? It should be at home. Yap, I knew my husband kept "Tiny Ten" next to his "Balveney". I added a shot or two? or whatever into two glasses of ours. Done? Nope! Lenorenvermore said "add a fresh little mint". I ran to our garden to pick up some mint leaves and put it into each glass. Perfect, isn't it!
Mmm, it was tasty and refreshing. My husband was pleased to see what I brought to him.
Thank you Lenorenevermore for a great hint for my refrigerator being free from a large watermelon. I keep the rest in the freezer and I can make some more glasses of watermelon cocktail.
