Spiked Watermelon Lavender Slurpee – Recipe!

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Remember those frozen concoctions we would buy at convenience stores or movie theatres either bright red or blue?  This Spiked Watermelon Lavender Slurpee is a much much tastier adult version that will cool you off and make you want to grab a straw.

I’ve always loved a good frozen drink and especially on a hot summer evening when the sun just begins to set –  the slurp of fresh watermelon with a hint of lavender will calm down the nerves and brings you to a happy place.  The light and refreshing components of this drink make it an unusually delicious Slurpee and a big splash of vodka creates a “big person” drink.

The whole thing is pureed in a blender using frozen watermelon with the rind removed, and some simple syrup infused with lavender.  A squeeze of lime adds freshness and balances the cocktail beautifully.  You can make yourself one big drink with this recipe, or two medium sized Slurpee’s and share with a friend.
