    Watermelon Limeade #SundaySupper

    It’s seems to be a winter that’s getting longer by the moment. As I sit here typing, on March 22, it’s SNOWING again! Just as my head is turning toward starting some seedlings for planting and planning out our garden. It’s SNOWING! AGAIN! I need something spring-like. Something summer-time cool to chase away the winter blasé mood.

    It was a combination of events that led me to try this recipe … first, Sunday Supper’s theme of Citrus Recipes That Will Make Your Smile, hosted by Lisa at Jersey Girl Cooks AND walking through the supermarket and finding watermelon! I know, I know, it’s the wrong time of year. I don’t care. It looked fab and I needed a cocktail.

    The original recipe did not call for gin. To me, it called for gin!

    • 6 cups 1-inch-pieces watermelon (from about 1/2 5-pound watermelon)
    • 1/2 cup cup fresh lime juice
    • 2–3 tablespoons light agave syrup (nectar) or honey
    • Lime wedges (for serving)
    • GIN

    Purée watermelon, lime juice, and 2 Tbsp. agave syrup in a blender until smooth. Add 1 Tbsp. more agave, if desired. Strain into a large pitcher filled with ice and stir in 1/2 cup water. Serve over ice and garnish with lime wedges.
