Chilly Watermelon Soup

READY IN: 3hrs 25mins
Recipe by Antifreesz

I got this recipe out of a magazine years ago while on vacation at the Beach. It was very hot and I remember looking at the article and saying to my DH "I want some of this now." Well, we got home and I made it. Even my DH liked it after all his balking about cold soup and just eat watermelon in slices…I love him anyway;)

This is fabulous! I did not strain it and I did not add the sparkly water/champagne. I'm going to make it in huge batches to freeze. That way, when I defrost it, I can give it a whir with the bubbly and it should be just like fresh. I can't wait to make more!
