When the weather gets warm, I like to give fresh chunks of watermelon a whir in the blender. The result, a delightfully sweet and superbly cold affair, is the perfect way to beat the afternoon heat. When I was younger, I didn't think it could get much better than that, however I later learned that I was wrong. With the addition of fresh strawberries, lemon juice, and vodka, the innocent drink becomes a not-so-innocent concoction. If you've never had a Strawberry Watermelon Vodka Slushie, then do yourself a favor and get the recipe. Oh and consider yourself warned, these go down a little too easily.
1 pint Fresh strawberries, hulled
2 cups Watermelon -- seeded, cubed
1/3 cup Sugar
1/3 cup Vodka
1/4 cup Lemon juice
2 cups Ice cubes
- In a blender container, combine all of the ingredients except the ice, and blend well.
- While blending, gradually add the ice blending until smooth.
- Serve immediately, garnish with watermelon slice or strawberry on edge of glass.
