Oooh these sound like the perfect drinks for lounging on the deck during a hot summer night!

I have stupid question though ...
the watermellon juice. You can't just buy watermellon juice, can you? If so, I've just never taken notice, lol.

If not, then I assume you just get the juice from a watermellon.
