Watermelon Lemon Drop Slushies

If you've ever bought too much watermelon, freeze extra for slushies. The slushies can be made with or without alcohol. Freeze the watermelon for 1 hour before blending it so you don't need to add ice which would water down the slushies. The lemon adds a bright tartness to the sweet watermelon and the slushies are incredibly refreshing and go down fast and easy.

Yield: 2 drinks, 6 to 8 ounces each
Prep Time: 2 minutes
Cook Time: 0 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour, to freeze watermelon prior to blending

4 cups diced watermelon, deseeded (freeze before blending for 1 hour)
2 shots lemon vodka (or your favorite flavored or unflavored vodka), optional
2 shots watermelon schnapps, optional
juice of 1 lemon, or to taste
sweetener, to taste (I recommend a liquid sweetener like agave, simple syrup, or a zero-calorie sweetener; granulated sugar may not dissolve entirely)

To the canister of a blender or food processor, add all ingredients and blend on high speed until smooth, about 1 minute.
Divide mixture between two glasses and serve immediately. Extra slushie mixture can be kept in the freezer for up to 1 month by placing freezer-safe glasses inside a large ziplock bag to avoid freezer smells; allow to thaw for about 45 minutes before stirring and serving. If adding alcohol, recipe is intended for those for whom alcohol use is legal and appropriate. Always drink responsibly.
