  • 1 medium ripe watermelon
  • 1/4 Cup powdered sugar
  • 1 Quart ginger ale
  • lettuce leaves
  • 1/2 Cup heavy cream
  • 1 Tablespoon powdered sugar
  • 1/2 Cup mayonnaise
  • 2 Tablespoons watermelon juice; from the above
  • 1 pinch salt

  2. Drain off juices and put pulp in a large bowl. Sprinkle with sugar and cover with ginger ale. Refrigerate 30 minutes; then drain off the liquid, which may be served over ice as a beverage, reserving 2 tablespoons juice for the Whipped-Cream Mayonnaise.
