Watermelon Limoncello Cocktail Recipe

An idea my son had while he was visiting. His thoughts were since I love watermelon to make a refreshing drink and since I was ailing with a backache the alcohol sounded to good to pass up. He went out bought all the ingredients and we made this one together.
 Chad had a great idea, this was so refreshing it was hard to stop at one!
Of course my backache felt a little better after the drink too!  (smile)

6 cups seedless watermelon pulp
1 1/2 cups water
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup limoncello
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup fruit ( suggestions strawberries, raspberries or blueberries)
assorted fruits to make kabobs, raspberries, strawberries, cubed watermelon
sprigs of mint

1 shot of Bacardi Rum to top it off

Place water and sugar in a small saucepan and boil together until sugar dissolves. In the mean time place the melon, berries and limoncello in a blender and puree until fine. Put through a mess strainer into a small pitcher. Add the simple syrup. Place in the refrigerator for around an hour. Before serving add lots of ice,  a shot of  Bacardi rum to the top of the drink. Place a fruit kabob on top, garnish with mint and enjoy!
