Hotter than Hades!!!! You won't hear me say it's too hot to cook very often...but tonight is one of those nights! So here's a fabulous drink with a little salad to refresh and nourish you! 
Watermelon Lemonade Martinis
1 ½ pounds watermelon, rind removed
2 cups water
4 tablespoons Wildtree Old Fashioned Lemonade
2 teaspoons honey
10 ounce watermelon flavored vodka, divided
In a blender process the watermelon until very smooth. Strain through a coarse sieve or a mesh strainer set over a bowl, stirring with a rubber spatula to push through any pulp. Return strained juice to the blender; add the water, Lemonade mix, and honey and blend until combined.  To make one drink fill a shaker with ice, add 1 cup of the watermelon lemonade and 2 ounces of vodka. Place cover on shaker and shake for about 10 seconds; strain into a martini glass. Garnish with watermelon and/or lemon slices.
