I have never tried Watermelonade, but I will now. The Ginger Sangria sounds yummy too. Thanks for sharing!

Made this for the Canorama and forgot to mention it. It is was a huge hit on Saturday. But one of most rewarding part of making several batches of this (I bought a HUGE watermelon) was when my 12 year-old paraded a bunch of his skate buddies through the kitchen this afternoon saying "You've got to try this watermelon drink my Mom makes, all from scratch." INSTANT street cred as the house to hang out at. Well, until they start thinking they should be adding vodka to the watermelonade that is...

For a recent day after the wedding party I made 5!!! gallons of watermelonade and it was all gone in 2 hours.
