We think that on these hot, sultry summer days a nice watermelon gazpacho is very tasty. The recipe below was came to us by way of our friend, Heather Hansen. She notes that it is a family favorite … without the vodka! 🙂 Carry Out Cafe doesn’t add vodka to ours either, but it still hits the spot! Enjoy
You can add a shot of citron vodka to each glass if you like.

3 cups watermelon, pureed and seedless
