After reading about folks struggling to get desired results, I tried to follow the review that suggested cutting a small lid out of the melon, scooping out the flesh, straining the juice, and then mixing in limeade and vodka together in the melon. But my melon cracked apart the second I went to cut it. So I went ahead and strained the juice out of the flesh, and put it into a clear pitcher so we'd see the nice pink color. My melon was small and I got a little under a half gallon of juice. I mixed in about 6oz of frozen limeade, 2 cups vodka, and 1/4 cup sweetened lime juice. Wonderful! Even though this idea strays from the original recipe, you still get the watermelon/booze combo, which is what we're all looking for anyway. :)
