Here’s the perfect drink to help you beat the heat in style! The watermelon vodka slush is one tasty drink, and in this weather, it doesn’t get any better!
4 cups watermelon flesh, seeds removed
2 fluid ounces simple syrup
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 cup vodka
2 fluid ounces melon liqueur
4 twists lemon zest, garnish
In a food processor or blender, puree the watermelon flesh. Carefully pour the pureed watermelon into empty ice cube trays and freeze for at least 4 hours. Simultaneously, freeze 4 martini glasses.
After the stipulated time, in a blender combine the frozen watermelon cubes, sugar syrup, lemon juice, vodka, and melon liqueur; blend until smooth.
Pour into 4 frozen martini glasses and garnish each with a lemon twist. To serve simply scoop the slushy mixture into bowls or tall glasses and tip with lemon-lime soda.
The drink not only gives you the goodness of a slush, but also provides for some heady times ahead!
This is perfect for BBQs, picnics, camping and by the pool. Any liquor works great with this one — even wine!
