Watermelon Lemonade Slushy

Sharing is caring!

Watermelon Lemonade Slushy is the perfect summer drink to cool you off — sweet watermelon is pureed with fresh mint and lemonade and mixed with vodka (optional) to create a refreshing cocktail for happy hour, a party or relaxing in your backyard. 

Watermelon Lemonade Slushy

For the Fourth of July we decided that we need to create a summery cocktail to enjoy while watching the local parade. Watermelon Lemonade Slushy was the perfect drink and was so refreshing on a hot summer day. While this drink recipe has vodka in it you can easily omit that and create a slushy that the whole family can enjoy.

This recipe makes a pitcher which is perfect for a get together or party and you can easily put this drink together ahead of time and leave it in the refrigerator until you are ready to serve it.

Watermelon Lemonade Slushy

I enjoy eating watermelon the traditional way but enjoy finding new ways to use it.  Last sumer we started using watermelon in drinks which became a big hit.  If you grow mint in your garden this is one way to put it to good use.  I never complain about having too much of something but mint is one of those herbs that grows and grows like a weed so finding ways to use it is always a plus.
