If you need a reason for a porch party, even if it's a party of one, this will give you cause to celebrate. This drink just makes you want to toast to the weekend and everything that's good about summer, watermelon, vivid ruby-red colors and bright flavors. There's a secret ingredient that makes this special. It's not watermelon or even remotely pink. It's orangecello - an Italian liqueur that will make you think of orange push-pops of your youth. But the ice cream truck's got nothing on this.

Ingredients

  1. Place the watermelon chunks in a blender or smoothie maker and wait for the next step

  5. Place orange and lime slices in the mixture.
  6. Serve over ice and garnish with reserved strawberries.
