    gailanng's Note:

    I don't even like beer, but I think I could get into this. The recipe calls for Maraschino liqueur. It's a relatively dry liqueur with a subtle bitter-almond flavor and can be found at any well-stocked liquor store. I'm certain the Maraschino liqueur contributes a great deal to this drink, but because the recipe uses so little of the liqueur, I don't see why it couldn't be replaced with maraschino cherry juice. A slighly altered recipe from Chow. Chilled time not included.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 3 lbs seedless watermelon, rind removed and cut into large dice
    • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
    • 2 tablespoons luxardo Maraschino liqueur
    • 2 (12 ounce) bottles white beer, such as Hoegaarden, chilled

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Set a fine-mesh strainer over a bowl; set aside.
    2. 2
      Place the watermelon in a blender and blend until liquified, about 1 minute. Pour through the strainer into the bowl and scrape a rubber spatula against the inside surface of the strainer to push the juice through until only pulp remains. Discard the pulp and set the strainer back over the bowl. (You should have about 3 cups of juice).
    3. 3
      Add the sugar to the juice and stir until dissolved, about 2 minutes. Refrigerate until chilled, about 1 1/2 hours or until ready to use.
    4. 4
      When ready to serve, add the maraschino liqueur and beer and stir gently to combine.

      Very refreshing! On vacation, I discovered the "Seedspitter" watermelon beer from a microbrewery called Parallel 49. I can't get it at home but this was similar. A Fosters can happens to have 24 ounces...makes enough to share with your mates!

      This was sooo good! I changed it up a bit and used cherry juice instead of the liqueur, and I used blue moon instead of hoegaarden, and it turned out incredible! Seriously this is the best summer beer I've tried. My husband loved it, and even drank the watermelon juice by itself! We will definitely be making this again for parties! Thanks so much for posting!
