Mama's Memorial Day Watermelon Martini

You're planning your Memorial Day celebration. You're gearing up to grill all of your favorites. You've got your chips, your dip, but you're still searching for a way to really wow your guests, or just to spice up the backyard festivities. Mama's Watermelon Martini oughta do the trick.

4 cups watermelon (rinds and seeds removed)
1 cup vodka (use lemon or orange flavored for extra citrus flavor)
1/2 cup cointreau
the juice of 2 limes
1 cup ice cubes
1 tablespoon sugar

In your blender puree the watermelon. Remove and put into separate pitcher. For two martinis, combine one cup of watermelon puree, 1/4 cup vodka, 1 tablespoon cointreau and three ice cubes. Blend. Pour into glasses and garnish with watermelon slices.
