Watermelon Thirst Quencher

When I think of summer fruits---
watermelon definitely falls under my top 3 summer fruits.
It's beautiful in color, juicy, sweet and a great thirst quencher!

Slicing or cutting your watermelon into cubes to eat is great
BUT what if you were to use the watermelon as a double duty thing?
Use a small watermelon not only as your drink but the actual glass
or drinking goblet!?!    What!?!  sounds like fun right?

It's really easy to make!  The only things you will need are:
a small watermelon, a large spoon or ice cream scoop to scoop
the inside of the watermelon, a colander (with finer holes),
a knife to slice the watermelon top (about 2 inches down from the top)
some fun, large straws and some booze.
(booze is optional and of your choosing of course!)

Once you scoop the inside of the watermelon, it's best if you blend it
to make it more of a juice rather than it being chunky. I like to use a wire 
colander like the one in the picture to get the froth out as well. 

You can add some large straws and an umbrella to make it even more fun to drink!
You can also make fruit skewers to add as a garnish.
Oh! and don't forget to add some ice.
