Summer time cooler

I know, I know, it's a little early for some of you, but here in SWFLA it's practically been summer all winter

AAB's Summertime Cooler

Into a blender mix*:

2 cups, cubed, seedless watermelon (the riper the better)
cup apple juice
cup Key Lime juice (or lemon juice)
2 TBS honey (or simple syrup)
4 oz light rum
2 oz peach schnapps

Blend well; pour into two TALL glasses with ice cubes.



* feel free to adjust the amounts to your liking

Seeded? Or did you mean seedless? Sounds good though.

We once went to a company X-Mas party at a 5 star restaurant downtown called The Gordon. The company paid for an open bar (good thing we have a strong public transportation system here!), and the VP introduced me to Midouri Sours.
I have bought the liquor and tried a dozen or so different recipes but have never been able to duplicate it.
I remember it was greenish/bluish with a little yellow in it as well. I really loved em, too much that night anyway ;) Even bought a shaker to make better mixed drinks.

Still bummed I can't duplicate it...

Seeded watermelon = you remove the seeds
Seedless watermelon = you still remove some seeds!

THIS sounds great - will keep it in mind for cooler weather!

Sounds like it had some Blue Curacao in it.. Many tropical drinks use it..
