The Southern Beauty
My Haute Hostess cocktail recipe for summer parties al fresco
1 large can of frozen limeade
handful of mint
Scoop out the inside of a watermelon and put pulp in lg ziplocs
In a blender put in one bag watermelon, 1/2 can of limeade,
handful of fresh mint, 1 cup of rum, 2 cups crushed ice.
Blend. Serve in martini glasses with sprig of mint.
Gorgeous cocktail. Great for a Non-alcoholic drink too without rum~

I’m partial to the Missoni-style (light Missoni print lined with purple satin) Margherita apron. So if you’re visiting me, I’m not saying you should get it for me… I’m just saying I wouldn’t mind.
