I had no Cointrau or triple sec so I used Gran Marinier. This is a delicate and lovely drink. Probably better without salted rims.

I probably had more than I should have! Need I say more?

What a fun and refreshing drink for Cinco de Mayo. And I have more watermelon in my freezer to enjoy another time. Thanks for sharing, Bergy. Made for Bevy tag.

Now I know what to do with the Huge watermelon that came in my CSA basket this week! These are Terrific.

Very refreshing after a hard days work in the sun. We doubled the watermelon and added 6 tsp sugar to sweeten the recipe. Everything else we left the same as the recipe. We did not experience any seperation as mentioned by another reviewer. Awesome recipe!

This is SO GOOD!!! My husband and I are enjoying them right now! I added a little splenda and used sweet watermelon. It does separate, but it doesn't bother us, it tastes great! Thanks!

Brought this to a girls planning meeting. HUGE HIT!!!! I am going to try to come up with a way to freeze the watermelon once it is pureed to see if I can have these in the winter, when I am missing those summer nights. Great recipe. Loved it.

I was a little disappointed in my results. I followed the instructions exactly, using Triple Sec. The drink tended to separate into two layers, liquids on bottom and fluffy watermelon foam floating on top. I never got a nice emulsified drink. I did have a real sweet, ripe watermelon, but never really got that flavor with the drink because of the separation of layers. I kept trying to stir it together with my straw, but to no avail. A wonderful "buzzy" experiment none-the-less. Thanks for the fun, Bergy!

I haven't tried this recipe yet, but I make these too and in response to the watermelon being week, a really good sweet watermelon is the only way to go with these otherwise they can be somewhat bland.

This is great, I used only about 4 ounces tequila which was plenty for us. Very refreshing and tasty!
