Mighty Thirst: Watermelon Chill

3rd May 2013

You know how watermelon season comes and you sit out on deck in your swimsuit, scoop out watermelon with your hands, and then rinse the juice off with the hose? Gah! This drink is making me excited for summer.

Watermelon Chill

-4 tsp frozen watermelon, seeds removed
-Juice of 1/2 lime
– 1 shot vodka

Put everything in the blender and turn it on until the drink is… blended. Pour it into a glass, garnish with mint and a melon ball, drink it until it’s gone. Wait a few minutes until you feel like a slightly more pleasant person, then make another one.

Here’s to spitting seeds out on the lawn, warm water from a hose that’s been coiled in the sun, and washing your feet off before bed after a day of padding around barefoot. What are you toasting this week?

    make a bigger batch with tequila, then lay on a cookie sheet & freeze. granita.

    Sounds delicious, but does 4 t. of watermelon really offer enough sweetness to hold up to 1/2 a lime and shot of vodka? Perhaps you meant 4 T?

    Hi MJ, No, I meant four Tsp. Basically, four standard size melon baller balls. It’s not meant to be particularly sweet.
