Watermelon Lemonade
1 small seedless watermelon
4 bottles corona
1/2 c cucumber vodka
1 container frozen pink lemonade concentrate, thawed
Cut the watermelon in pieces and reserve some if you want to use it as a garnish. Transfer the watermelon to a blender and blend until it is liquid. Strain the blended watermelon over a bowl to catch the liquid. Repeat the process until you have 4 c watermelon juice. In a large pitcher, combine all the ingredients. If you would like to make this ahead of time, wait until you are ready to serve to add the Corona. Serve with watermelon as a garnish.
