Happy Hour: Strawberry Watermelon Slushie

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.

Strawberry Watermelon Slush

nacho - go ahead and leave out the vodka. it should still be nice and delicious! You might need to experiment with the ratio of fruit in order to get the correct consistency. Maybe also a bit of juice instead? Give it a whirl and see what you end up with!

To make this a virgin drink, should I just leave out the vodka, or is there a good substitute? Thanks! Nacho
