Husband enjoys gin, and I love watermelon, so we decided to give this one a try. Balanced flavors, not too sweet or too tart. I did strain the watermelon through a rough/wide sieve, and it ended up with just enough pulp to give it flavor. 2 cups of cubed watermelon made about 1 cup of watermelon juice for me. Will definitely be making this one again.

Loved this great drink! The watermelon and ginger ale are a great combo; it's perfect with gin but I'll bet rum or vodka would work too. Thanks for sharing the recipe! Made for ZWT8, Chefs gone WILD!

Wicked Good??? ABSOLUTELY! This was indeed a wicked combo - what's not to like? This will become my tropical "go-to" drink for parties. Easy to make in quantity and so, so good! Made for ZWT8 - Great Britain Pub Crawl Challenge. Thanks, January Bride!

Wicked good is right! I just love watermelon and now I love it more with Bombay Sapphire gin. This is so refreshing that I drank DH's, too, while he was out mowing the lawn! ;) I also like that I can get further mileage by adding more crushed ice and some additional ginger ale around the halfway point. Thanks, January Bride! Made for Veggie Recipe Swap, July 2010.

This is lovely and refreshing, and very watermelony. I added the watermelon pureed without straining and found it a bit pulpy, so I tried straining it and DH thought it lost too much flavor so we added the pulp back in. Made for the Diabetic Forum "Choose Your Event Party" in honor of National Watermelon Day Aug 3rd.
