Happy Hour Friday: Watermelon Daiquiri


I have always been a fan of pretty party drinks. Nothing is better in the summer than a gorgeous, frozen cocktail.With temperatures rising across the US (the high is 95 degrees today), this frozen daiquiri is perfect for a summer picnic, cookout or cocktail party. I bought a whole watermelon at the grocery store earlier this week, and after we had eaten almost half of it and didn't think we could possibly eat anymore, I used the remaining melon for this tasty daiquiri. Serve it in a highball glass and garnish it with a lime. Your guests will be ever so thankful that you did!
