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.

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. The Test Kitchen
