A light and refreshing summer cocktail! As a nod to Honeysuckle Farms, we used Mississippi's Cathead Honeysuckle Flavored Vodka but you can substitute with a light rum or plain vodka.
- 6 pounds watermelon, seeded and cubed
- 1 cup honeysuckle vodka*
- 1/2 cup fresh lime juice
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 4 cups ice cubes
- 2 cups lemon-lime soft drink
- Diced watermelon, for garnish
- Lime slices, for garnish
- Fresh mint leaves, for garnish

Process watermelon in a blender or food processor until smooth. Pour through a fine wire-mesh strainer into a large pitcher, using back of a spoon to squeeze out juice; discard solids.
Stir vodka and next 2 ingredients into watermelon juice. Add ice, and top with soft drink; gently stir. Serve immediately.
