Watermelon Slushy


It's summer time which means pool parties and picnics.  As I started packing my picnic basket with fruits and tea sandwiches, I noticed that I needed to wash my meal down with something cool and refreshing.  So I came up with a watermelon slushy.  This is perfect for hot summer days or lounging by the pool.

First grab yourself a watermelon and dice it up in cubes and freeze it. Taking a lemon, cut it in half, and squeeze it in a pitcher.
This might be tricky on a picnic, but at home you can decorate the glass with a sugar rim before pouring in your slushy.

Using the Dessert Bullet, push the watermelon cubes through the chute.  Out comes delicious watermelon icy.

Place the watermelon slush into a pitcher and add sparkling water and the lemon or lime juice.

To make the drink more cooling and refreshing, push ice cubes through the Dessert Bullet, making shaved ice, and adding to the top of your drink.
Garnish with a watermelon slice and a sprig of mint.

If you want to make your drink sweeter add honey or simple syrup.  Enjoy!

Ingredients:
1 cup of frozen watermelon cubes
Squeeze 1 lemon
1/8 cup of sugar
10 ice cubes
2 cups of sparkling water
3 sprigs of mint

Directions:
Dice 1 watermelon into cubes and freeze.
Take 1 lemon or lime and squeeze the juice into a pitcher.
Taking the Dessert Bullet, push the watermelon cubes through the chute.
Add watermelon icy into pitcher.
Add 2 cups of sparkling water to pitcher.
Then using the glass of your choice, and dipping the rim of the glass in water, followed by dipping the rim into the sugar to make a beautiful sugar rimed glass.
Pour your watermelon slushy into the cup.
With your Dessert Bullet, push your ice cubes through the chute, to make shaved ice.  Add to the top of your drink.
To make slushy sweeter, add 1/8 cup of honey (or to the amount of your choice) or simple syrup.
Lastly, garnish with a watermelon slice and a sprig of mint.
Drink and enjoy.
