3 cups
1 cup watermelon cubes
1/2 cup vodka
1/2 cup pineapple juice
1/4 cup cream of coconut

"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.
