  • 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
  • 1 dash paprika
  1. Using a teaspoon (or a melon-baller) scoop out the pulp from watermelon.
  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. Arrange the drained pulp in large lettuce-leaf cups for individual servings, or in a large leaf-lined serving bowl for table service. Top with a generous dollop of Whipped-Cream Mayonnaise.
  3. For the Whipped-Cream Mayonnaise: In a small bowl, whip cream until soft peaks form; stir in sugar. In a medium bowl, blend mayonnaise with reserved watermelon juice, salt, and paprika. Fold in whipped cream.
