Remember when I posted the first recipe this month and I said breakfast gets lost in the Thanksgiving shuffle? Kids are the same way. They’re at the celebration, usually dining at the little table in the corner, but they’re often overlooked when it comes to the menu. That’s especially true when it comes to the drink menu. Adults have their adult beverages, but kids are usually left to choose from milk, juice or water.

Today’s recipe gives the little tykes something special to sip on. And, if you think this drink can’t be enjoyed by grown-ups, think again. It’s so good, even Uncle Bob might like a glass — especially if you add a splash of whatever he keeps in that flask.



1 cup seedless watermelon puree
1/4 cup grape juice
3/4 cup sparkling water
Crushed ice to taste


Mix together the watermelon puree and grape juice in an oversized tumbler. Add the sparkling water, then the ice, which causes a nice fizz. Serve immediately.
