Watermelon... for the adults

Just as in my life, this blog often revolves around children.  But every once in a while, there is a moment dedicated to the adults.  This is one of those moments... children sleeping snugly in their beds, relaxing with my husband, cocktail in hand.

This watermelon cocktail recipe has been floating around the blogs, having first come from Sunset Magazine.  However, here's my variation... a little higher juice to cocktail ratio.

Blend chunks of watermelon in a food processor.  Strain.  Rub a lemon wedge along the rim of a martini glass and dip the rim in sugar. Combine 6 tablespoons watermelon juice, 2 tablespoons brandy, 1 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice, and 2 tablespoons Grand Marnier. Stir. Garnish with watermelon.
