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
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.
Stir in vodka to taste.
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.
Allow to freeze for a few hours until completely set.
Remove from the freezer and give the sticks a good turn –they should remove easily.
Serve in an ice bucket to make the ices last a little longer –if they aren’t devoured immediately.
