You Need This Watermelon Slushie in Your Life

Eating watermelon this time of year is a no-brainer; it’s refreshing, hydrating, and delicious. In fact, it’s pretty hard to find a summer treat that beats a big plate of juicy watermelon wedges.

Unless, of course, you blend watermelon with lime juice, balsamic vinegar, and vodka to make the ultimate summer cocktail. Yeah, I’d say that takes the cake.

This recipe requires a bit of foresight — just an hour to let the cubed watermelon hang out in the freezer to cool. Once it’s sufficiently chilled, you blend it with vodka, lime juice, simple syrup, balsamic vinegar, a pinch of salt, and some ice to make the slushie.

Pour into glasses, garnish with fresh mint, and kiss all your cares goodbye.
