Since I moved back up north, I have blossomed into a full-blown foodie-wanna-be. I say that, as I am not a total food snob, but I do love to cook, and I do love good food. Since my munchkin would prefer to eat peanut butter and jelly every day, and Riley shouldn’t really be eating people food, I have guests over for dinner so we can enjoy yummy food. Food like my Boozy Watermelon Slushy. Okay, maybe that’s a drink, but hey, those are good too.
With that never-ending watermelon (Think pickles, and more pickles), I still had about two gallons of watermelon puree I froze into cubes and have been storing in the freezer. And then we had that heat wave. That just screams refreshing drink.
Boozy Watermelon Slushy
- Watermelon cubes (puree frozen into cubes)
- Mint Simple Syrup
- Sprite or Soda Water
Directions – Combine cubes and syrup and blend. Add vodka. Pour into glass and top with sprite for a sweet drink or soda water for something a little lighter in taste. For a thicker drink add regular ice as well to the blender stage. If you’re feeling fancy, garnish with a sprig of mint.
I purposely did not do amounts – that’s up to you. It’s up to you how boozy/sweet you want your drink.
