Watermelon Cooler

Prep time 10 mins
Yield Makes 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 (10-oz.) box frozen strawberries in syrup, thawed
  • 3 cups
  • 1 cup watermelon cubes
  • 1/2 cup vodka
  • 1/2 cup pineapple juice
  • 1/4 cup cream of coconut

How to Make It

  1. Puree strawberries in a blender until smooth. Divide strawberry puree evenly among 4 tall glasses.

  2. Place ice in blender; add watermelon and next 3 ingredients. Process until smooth. Pour watermelon mixture evenly over strawberry puree in glasses.

  3. "Warm" Ice: Slightly melted ice blends a better drink, Ernie says. He suggests letting the ice sit out at room temperature for about 30 minutes before using. "It should be wet to the touch without sticking to your fingers," he explains.
