The Perfect Summer Spritzer

What could be more idyllic for a summer day by the pool than a watermelon cocktail? I've always wanted to try this but it seems a little overkill for two of-age participants. I'll be in Florida soon, though, with plenty of friends and family that will be willing to consume an adult beverage or two (or four) so I'll be testing this recipe out. Poolside, of course.

Watermelon Killer Chiller

1 watermelon (6 lbs.)
12 oz. vodka
12 oz. lemon-lime soda
1/4 cup fresh lime juice

Slice off the top quarter of the watermelon and scoop out the flesh. Reserve the melon rind to use as a your punch bowl. Puree flesh and strain back into the rind/bowl. Stir in vodka, soda and lime juice.

Sounds refreshing, doesn't it? Cheers!
