More About This Recipe
  • Keep the whole crew cool this summer with our Watermelon Vodka Slush. It’s a party-sized punch that’s easy to make ahead, and starts with blending watermelon, vodka and honey together, then freezing. But with all that booze and honey in there, it won’t freeze firmly. Instead, it creates a deliciously frosty, granita-style watermelon shaved ice. Grate with a fork, pop into a punch bowl and top with lemonade—or sparkling lemonade, if you so desire. The end result is a massive batch of refreshing slush punch. Like a frosty smoothie chatted with your favorite cocktail and decided to make things official. A divine combination. Perfect for hot summer days, even better for pool parties. Cheers to summer! Cheers to slush punch!
