Mom finally gets a day off filled with nothing but flowers, candy, and a meal she didn’t prepare whether at home or a restaurant-so why not treat her to a zesty spring/summer vodka watermelon slush martini while she’s relaxing by the pool or on the patio? Just sayin…!
Vodka Watermelon Slush
4 cups watermelon flesh, seeds removed
2 fluid ounces simple syrup
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 cup vodka
2 fluid ounces melon liqueur
4 twists lemon zest, garnish
In a food processor, puree the watermelon flesh. Pour the pureed watermelon into empty ice cube trays and freeze for at least 4 hours. Also, freeze 4 martini glasses.
In a blender combine the frozen watermelon cubes, simple syrup, lemon juice, vodka, and melon liqueur; blend until smooth. Pour into 4 frozen martini glasses and garnish each with a lemon twist
