Boozy Watermelon Slushies

Boozy Watermelon Slushies serve up frozen watermelon and Zinfandel with touch of lime and raspberry. Refreshing sippers to cool summer heat.
Watermelon and summer go hand in hand. Big slices of ripe, red juicy watermelon appear on picnic tables everywhere.
If you’re like me, you tend to over buy watermelon. The last thing I want is to run out!
Consequently I have leftover watermelon. So what do I do with it? I freeze it!
Frozen watermelon can be a great treat by itself. You may need to thaw it a bit to get it apart!

I like using frozen fruit in drinks. You can skip the ice. No more watered down slush, shakes or smoothies.
The trick to using frozen fruit in drinks is to not over process it. Peaches, melons, cherries and berries all make great cold drinks.
Here is a strawberry cantaloupe smoothie using frozen fruit. You can serve it over ice too!

This watermelon drink gets its zing from Zinfandel and Chambord. I balanced the flavor with a bit of lime juice.

If your watermelon isn’t as sweet as you would like, just add a bit of simple syrup or honey!
