I bought a gi-gundo watermelon a few days ago! Now I needed to find LOTS of things to do with it! So my hunt began for all things watermelon! So far I decided to make the 3 recipes shown below. I loved all of them equally. I still have 1/2 of a watermelon leftover, so you might be seeing more watermelon recipes, on this blog, in the very near future!
This was the first recipe I made with the watermelon. I love martinis, so of course I had to try this. I loved this recipe because it was simple...just fresh squeezed watermelon juice, vodka and a splash of lime juice! Oh, and a sugar rimmed martini glass! Here is the link to this delicious cocktail...Watermelon Martini
And because I'm in love with my new ice cream maker, I just had to make the sorbet! This was such a refreshing frozen dessert! If you want the sorbet to stay slushy and not frozen solid in your freezer, just add a tablespoon of vodka to the mixture before you add it to your ice cream maker. I forgot to do that...but I won't make that mistake next time!

And this last watermelon recipe caught my eye because it was so unique! I love fruit with sweet creamy dipping sauces, but I never thought to try it with watermelon. This was excellent! I loved the contrast of flavors in this dessert...sweet and tangy! And I loved the combination of textures...creamy and crunchy! Here is the link to this very cool recipe...Watermelon Dippers
