Watermelon Vodka Slushie
This is my favourite summer cocktail, so refreshing and tastes amazing! I’ve also made an equally as good non-alcoholic version by leaving the vodka and melon liqueur out and adding 1 tsp of grenadine instead.
4 Cup Watermelon flesh with the seeds removed
4 Tbl Sugar Syrup*
2 Tbl Lime Juice
1 Cup Vodka
4 Tbl Midori
In a food processor puree the watermelon and pour into ice cube trays, freeze for at least four hours until frozen.
In a blender combine the frozen watermelon, sugar syrup, lemon juice, vodka and Midori, blend until smooth.
Pour into glasses and serve immediately
*To make sugar syrup bring one cup of filtered water and one cup of caster sugar to the boil then reduce heat and stir until sugar is dissolved. Take off the heat and cool completely, then bottle for later use.
