Samoan Watermelon Drink

Last summer, we sold food at Provo's 4th of July fair, and our neighbors made this amazing drink. Being 6 months pregnant in 100 degree weather made me fall in love - because it is so cool and refreshing! It really is a unique drink too, with the small chunks of watermelon in it. It may sound strange, but just wait until you try it on a hot day! I don't know exactly what they put in it, but this is pretty close to what I remember it tasting like. It's easy to make, and oh- so good!

PS - Does anyone know what the real name for this is?



Samoan Watermelon Drink

Ingredients:
1/2 medium seedless watermelon (1 quart crushed watermelon + juice)
2 1/2 quarts cold water
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/2 to 1 1/2 cups sugar

Directions:
1. Cut the fruit out of 1/2 of a medium seedless watermelon. Crush with a potato masher in a large bowl until the watermelon pieces are very small. (You should have about a quart of crushed watermelon, with its juice)
2. Add watermelon to water in a gallon-sized pitcher. (If there are any white seeds, these should float to the top - if you want to remove them, do so now with a small strainer or spoon.)
3. Mix in cream, then stir in sugar to taste.
4. Chill! This drink is best served very cold. Enjoy!
