  • 4 cups watermelon chunks (approximately 1" cubes) (In photo, triangle slices w/rind)
  • ½ cup brandy
  • 2 cups pomegranate juice

  • 1½ cups Orangina or orange Italian soda
Instructions
  1. Fill ice cube trays with watermelon juice and freeze.
  2. Place orange slices, watermelon, and brandy in medium sized bowl, toss gently, and let stand for 15 minutes to allow fruit to soak up some of the brandy flavors.
