    Great summertime drink - for those who don't love texture in their cocktails, just strain the watermelon puree for the juice (husband preferred it this way). However, I loved it as is. Also, substitute bitters with a shot of St. Germaine for a great fresh taste. A great way to use leftover watermelon!
