Watermelon & Vodka Ices


Recipe Info

  • Servings : 4
  • Prep Time : 10m
  • Ready In : 1:40 h

Arguably the most refreshing of fruits for lazy afternoons, watermelon pairs incredibly well with vodka. Add some fresh mint leaves to the recipe if you fancy – otherwise this simple refresher should take no more than 15 minutes to prepare. Great to start off a summer luncheon.


  • 500 mL watermelon juice
  • 60 mL vodka


Step 1

Cut up about half a medium sized watermelon. You will be surprised at how much juice comes out so don’t overdo it! Blend until smooth, then pour through a sieve into a 500ml measuring jug.

Step 2

Stir in vodka to taste.

Step 3

Pour into shot glasses (30ml) and place in the freezer. After 1.5 hours, just as the ices are beginning to set, put the lolly sticks in the glasses.

Step 4

Allow to freeze for a few hours until completely set.

Step 5

Remove from the freezer and give the sticks a good turn –they should remove easily.

Step 6

Serve in an ice bucket to make the ices last a little longer –if they aren’t devoured immediately.
