This is a delicious summertime treat that's so easy to make, especially with seedless watermelon. I use Triple Sec but any orange flavored liqueur can be used to suit your taste.

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
This cocktail screams summertime! Freezing the watermelon means you don't have to add much ice to this refreshing, adult only drink. It's sweet and full of watermelon flavor with a slight tang from the lime. Perfect for the beach or sipping poolside.

seeded watermelon, 1" cubes
