Watermelon, vodka and slush

The summer is here and is here to stay for some time to come. This season can often leave us high and dry, parched and craving for something cool
and delicious.

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!
