Border Grill - Mandalay Bay

Border Grill Watermelon Lemonade

What could be cooler than a nice, tall glass of iced watermelon lemonade for your next barbecue? Serve sandia (Spanish for watermelon) in a clear pitcher to highlight its brilliant color. A garnish of thin lemon slices looks nice against the pink of the juice.

Serves 3

4 cups watermelon chunks, seeded or seedless
2 to 3 tablespoons sugar (or to taste)
1/2 cup cold water
5 ice cubes
juice of 1 to 2 lemons (or to taste)

Combine all the ingredients in a blender and puree until smooth. Serve over additional ice.

For the adult version: Add some vodka! It's perfect with this light summer refresher.
