Description

Light and refreshing, you’re going to be sipping on this Boozy Watermelon-Strawberry Slush all summer long! Made with real fruit and tequila, this easy, frozen cocktail will definitely be your new party fave!


Ingredients

Units Scale
  • 4 cups seedless watermelon
  • 2 cups frozen strawberries
  • 4 ounces simple syrup
  • 6 ounces Tequila (your choice)
  • Juice from one lime
  • 4 jalapeno slices (with seeds)
  • 3/4 cup fresh mint leaves
  • Ice cubes for thickening, if desired

Instructions

  1. Cut the watermelon in half and scoop out the fruit. Cube the watermelon and set aside.
  2. Make a simple syrup: Using equal parts water and sugar (1/4 cup:1/4 cup), place in a small saucepan on medium heat until sugar is dissolved, stirring frequently, about 3 minutes. Remove from stove and let cool completely.
  3. Place all of the ingredients into a high-powered blender (or food processor) and purée until smooth.
  4. Pour into individual cocktail glasses and garnish with melon balls and mint leaves on toothpicks (optional). Or serve extra lime wedges on the side!

Notes

  • You can either freeze the watermelon cubes or strawberries. Either will work. I had a bag of frozen strawberries from Trader Joe’s in my freezer so I opted to use those.
  • If you like your cocktails boozier, feel free to add more tequila! Not judging!
  • I made these pretty little toothpick garnishes using balled melon and sprigs of mint. You can leave it off, or just garnish with lime wedges.
  • I used the leftover mixture to make boozy popsicles! Didn’t change a thing, just filled up my popsicle molds with the leftover mix. These pops were so delish as a boozy treat the next night!
