DIRECTIONS

  • Set a fine-mesh strainer over a bowl; set aside.
  • 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).
  • 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.
  • When ready to serve, add the maraschino liqueur and beer and stir gently to combine.
