Grown up Slushie... (and a kid version too)

In the summertime we all love slushes.

Whether we get them at a convenience store or make them at home, they're always a perfect treat.

This is a super easy one...

Cut a watermelon into chunks and freeze in a single layer on a lined cookie sheet.
Once they're frozen, you can put them into a tub or zip top bag.
You can pull them out whenever you want and add them to slushes, smoothies, or even just snack on the frozen pieces!

For this Grown Up Slush, add about 1 to 1 1/2 cups frozen watermelon chunks to a blender.
Then add about 1 1/2 ounces of vodka. You can use straight vodka or a flavored version. (cherry, lemon, etc.)
Then blend! If you need a bit more liquid to loosen up the slush you can use a splash of water, juice, or lemon lime soda. (or, of course, more vodka if you're feeling spunky.)

It's so yummy and refreshing!

For the Kid version of this, just blend the watermelon chunks with lemon lime soda. (or juice)

Perfect for summer!

I wonder who the first person EVER was to use the word "slushie." I bet they giggled.
