'Dew The Watermelon Lemonade - 52 Grilling and BBQ Secret Extras - DRINKS!

Pin It Now!

There are lots of ways to set your back yard BBQ as something special... Something better than the next guy; which sets you apart as "That Guy" (or Gal)...  the neighborhood BBQ Guru!

One of my favorite is with a specialty drink.

And this little gem just SCREAMS SUMMER!

It's a juiced up lemonade.  Made with an unusual Watermelon extra flavor but with bubbly carbonation from a liter bottle of soda and the Zing of Red Mountain Dew.  You can also substitute a bottle of Lemon Lime flavored pop (7-Up).  But for me, the extra zing of the Dew adds so much more!

And of course you always have the option of adding a little adult something something.  Either with individual shots of Rum, Vodka or Tequila to each glass, or add a half a bottle (to taste) if you are sure everyone in your party wants to indulge!

ENJOY ENJOY, party responsible and bask in the glory of being "That Guy" (or Gal)

OK... Here's what I did...

Dew The
Watermelon Lemonade

  • 8 Cups Cubed Seedless Watermelon
  • 1 Liter Bottle Code Red Mountain Dew
  • 1 (12 Ounce) Can Frozen Pink Lemonade
  • 1 Cup Sugar
  • Optional - Ice as needed, or Plan ahead, make the mix and freeze half as icecubes
Cooking Directions
  1. First, Cube the watermelon, removing all of the rind. Run this through a food processor for several minutes, pulsing as needed until smooth.
  2. In a large punch bowl or drink server (as pictured), mix the watermelon juice, frozen lemonade and Code Red Mountain Dew (Or substitute a Lemon Lime (7-Up) carbonated Soda.
  3. Add Sugar and mix thoroughly.
