Perfect Summer Drink: Watermelon-Ginger Limeade

Nothing sounds like summer more than the whisper of watermelon. This little drink is perfect served pool side and will have the kiddos begging for more. When just serving adults, you can spice it up with a little vodka to make a refreshing cocktail too.

I served this with slices of the watermelon leftover from the recipe below and it was a huge hit. Note: it's best if all ingredients are organic.
