I feel like every summer I’m on the hunt for the perfect watermelon cocktail and I finally found one when I came across The Hard Seltzer Cocktail Book! I am so excited to share one of my summer patio faves with you!

Hard Seltzer Watermelon Sugar Slushy

This watermelon slushy is dangerously refreshing—perfect for a hot day at the beach. Or for pretending that it’s a hot day at the beach. In Malibu. With Harry Styles. Okay, too hot! Freeze the watermelon overnight; it is best served as cold as possible.

4 cups seedless watermelon, chopped

1 cup vodka

2 ounces lime juice

1–2 ounces simple syrup, to taste

1 (12-ounce) can watermelon or lime hard seltzer

1 lime wedge, to rim glasses (optional) 

sugar, to rim glasses (optional)

lime wheels, for garnish

How to Mix:

✦ Put the watermelon in a large ziplock bag. Place in the freezer for a minimum

of 1 hour, but ideally overnight. 

✦ The next day, put the watermelon, vodka, lime juice, and simple syrup in a blender. Puree until the watermelon is completely liquefied.

✦ Add the seltzer and pulse a few times. You don’t want to blend out all the bubbles, but you want this well mixed. 

✦ If desired, rub a lime wedge around the rims of two large glasses. Dip in sugar.

✦ Pour into prepared glasses and garnish with lime wedges.
