I’m excited for today’s cocktail because it’s one of those that doesn’t SCREAM July 4th unless you do the rim. Really, one of my favorite things about this, it’s perfect for the entire summer. Make it as fun as you want it with the choice of rim colors.
I can totally picture this at a barbecue with a blender just whipping this up super easy, hanging out with good friends and good times. And for the kids, make slashes MINUS the vodka. Obviously! Still make their glasses fun too! Just make sure if they pick one up to drink, they don’t pick up mommas. HA! That wouldn’t be good!
Blueberry Watermelon Slushie
- 6 ounces watermelon
- 1 ounce blueberry vodka
- 1-2 lemon wedges
- blue decorating sugar, optional for rim
Puree watermelon, vodka and juice of one lemon wedge in a blender. Add ice (to desired thickness) and blend until smooth.
If sugaring the rim, pour a small amount of blue decorating sugar onto a plate. Run lemon wedge around the rim of the glass. Dip rim in sugar. Pour cocktail into glass. Makes 1 cocktail.
So… whatever you’re doing this holiday weekend, be safe and have FUNNNNN!
