Drink recipe: Watermelon cooler
Also, the young, soft white seeds in a "seedless" watermelon are perfectly fine to ingest. Actually, they make your drink look even more watermelon-y
- 4 cups 2-inch cubes watermelon
- 1 cup vodka, chilled
- 2 tablespoons honey (see note)
- Garnish: small watermelon wedges with rind (optional)
Freeze the watermelon chunks in a zip-top plastic bag until just frozen, about 1 hour. Remove from the freezer and add to a blender. Pour in the vodka and honey. Process until blended and pour into frosted cocktail or jelly glasses. Garnish, if desired.
Note Use standard honey (say, clover) instead of a dark or other strongly flavored version; otherwise it’ll change the drink’s flavor in a disappointing way.
