    drbecca26's Note:

    This came from an old issue of Martha Stewart Living...can't remember just which one. This recipe takes some time and effort, but feels so decadent with the watermelon "ice" cubes, it's totally worth the trouble. Nice on a summer afternoon to sip one of these on the deck and imagine that Martha might unwind in the same way...LOL!

      Yum! You've got to love Martha. Those frozen watermelon cubes are perfection. Very enjoyable, refreshing cocktail. Perfect for a warm day. Thanks for posting drbecca26! Made for PAC Fall 2009.
