Now you know.

Well there goes my usual summer libation of Watermelon Daiquiri! :(
Utilises frozen W/M so absolutely no nutrition there but on second thoughts...I'll drink doubles so I can get a fraction. :) lolol ;)

I love my watermelon ice cold and go through at least half of a watermelon per week myself alone. Same with cantaloupe. Gotta be cold. Never had a watermelon dacquiri but I'll have to be sure and try one.
