Watermelon cranberry sharbat
This bright red drink is as visually appealing as it is thirst-quenching. A true summertime favorite. Add a good helping of vodka, and this becomes a great idea for a house drink for one of your summer entertainment evenings.
– 2½ lbs (1.25 kg) seedless watermelon, rind removed and diced
– 1 cup (250 ml) cranberry juice
– ¼ cup (65 ml) fresh lime juice
– ½ cup (100 g) sugar
