Watermelon Chiller

May 28, 2010 No Comments »

Here’s a summer setting to consider: You’re reclining on a chair in the yard and the sun is beating down — you’re in your shades getting your tan on, and all that’s missing is a refreshing beverage and maybe a snack or two.

This is the perfect drink for days on the patio. For part two of our Mexican themed recipe series (here’s part one) we have a sweet two ingredient mix for a tasty frozen blended beverage. It’s refreshing, delicious, and there’s no added sugar!

Ingredients:

- Half of 1 small/medium watermelon (make sure you wash it before you cut into it)

- Approximately 1 cup of Absolut Vanilla vodka (I use Absolut because there is only natural flavouring added and no sugar)

Directions:

1. Cut watermelon in half.

2. Cut the watermelon into smaller pieces.

3. Peel the watermelon.

4. Cut the watermelon into cubes.

5. Place the watermelon pieces into a plastic container that has a lid, and pour 1 cup of vodka over the pieces.

6. Place the container in the freezer for about 4 hours.

7. When the watermelon is frozen, remove it from the freezer and shake the container.

8. Pour the contents into a blender and blend at high speed until smooth.

Pour contents into small glasses, garnish with a cucumber and serve immediately. If you use half of a watermelon it should make four-six servings. If you’re not going to serve it all immediately, blend only a portion of the mix and put the remainder back in the freezer.

The drinks paired with a jicama cucumber snack are a great combination for a sunny day.
