Watermelon season is here and I, for one, am ecstatic. We all adore watermelon, and it has to be one of my absolute favorite fruits. Hence, today's watermelon slush cocktail.
Watermelon Slush Cocktail
The juicy sweet taste is not only delicious but super hydrating. And it pairs amazingly well with mint. Adding a burst of freshness and vitality, the mint infuses this cocktail and really enhances the summertime feel.
When picking a watermelon, be sure to choose one that is heavy for its size and makes a hollow sound when you thump it. This ensures that the melon is ripe and super juicy. Perfect for devouring on a hot summer day.
This is another cocktail I adore for pool days with friends. Make a blender full and enjoy with your besties for an excellent day in the sun.
Watermelon Slush Cocktail Ingredients
To make this cocktail, you will need a blender, plenty of ice, and watermelon. Also, you are going to need a mint simple syrup. The syrup can be made the day before and be stored in the fridge until you are ready for it.
