The Fourth of July is just over a week away and it's time to start prepping your menu. As you consider whether to BBQ chicken or grill burgers, one item is a must, watermelon. This all-American treat helps keep things cool on a hot summer day, but eating slices and having a seed spitting contest is over.  Puree to fruit to get out all the flavorful juices and use it as a mixer. This light, refreshing beverage is worthy of becoming summer's signature cocktail. Here's the mix up...
