Deseed and liquify watermelon without skin or rind, in blender.

Liquify a peeled and seeded lemon in blender. Add two cans of lemonade concentrate following directions for lemonade, but substituting alcohol for one can of water per can of concentrate.

John suggest unbonded whiskey, if available, but otherwise, Everclear, vodka or light rum will do. Watch out for the Everclear though. If you are in someone elses campsite you may never make it back to yours. You may be found in the morning in the dewy grass with the ants crawling in and out of your mouth...

Lest we digress...

Add sugar to taste starting with about ¼ cup. Cork in an old whiskey or wine bottle, or even a mason jar. Keep in the cooler until used. Serve to unsuspecting friends and be the hit of the party. Take that for what it's worth.

NOTE: A non-alcoholic version for young'uns, those of us with bad livers, or designated drivers, is made by using the lemonade concentrate as per directions without the booze. I have to say, the flavor is refreshing and tasty. Those drinking the leaded version concur with us drinking the unleaded.
