    Sounds good Burt. But given that I’m the one American who doesn’t like watermelon, probably not for me. Below is my offering, which we did, indeed, drink last night.

    The Team Tedford Toddy (the official drink of my husband’s mixed-doubles tennis team)

    Orange-flavored vodka
    Pomegranate juice
    Lime slices
    Pomegranate seeds (optional)

    Mix a jigger of rum with tonic and pomegranate juice to taste. Add the juice of one lime slice, plus a few pomegranate seeds.Report

    remove the meat from the watermelon

    This was the rejected sequel to American Pie…

    (In all seriousness I never heard of the red part of a watermelon referred to as “the meat”. The flesh, yes, but not the meat.)Report

    Is it necessary to strain out the pulp? I tend to like my juices on the thicker side.Report

    I get pretty obsessed with Bloody Marys during the summer but I recently tried a variation someone told me about. It was fantastic (It’s also pretty good without the booze. (My 15-year old loves virgin Bloody Marys and she gave the no-alcohol version of this one a thumbs up as well.)

    6 oz V8 juice
    3 oz orange juice
    2 oz ginger ale
    1-3 oz vodka
