Watermelon Granita is cool, refreshing and a great way to use up leftover watermelon, or freeze a few chunks and whirl up for a trendy cocktail.
Watermelon Vodka Slushy
Whirl up a sexy cocktail and serve in chilled martini glasses. Place 5 cups (1.25 L) coarsely chopped seedless watermelon in a plastic bag and freeze at least 4 hours, preferably overnight. Just before serving, place in a blender along with 1 cup (250 mL) vodka, 1/2 cup (125 mL) freshly squeezed lime juice, 1/4 cup (50 mL) orange-flavoured liqueur and 3 tbsp (45 mL) granulated sugar. Whirl or pulse until frothy and fairly smooth. Pour into martini or your favourite cocktail glasses. Makes 5 cups (1.25 L)
