Drink recipe: Watermelon cooler

This is the dreamiest drink i’ve had in ages. So agree the friends I most recently shared it with. They, like me, love how it’s naturally sweetened with honey. It’s a lot of fun to serve in chilled jelly glasses.

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

Ingredients
  • 4 cups 2-inch cubes watermelon
  • 1 cup vodka, chilled
  • 2 tablespoons honey (see note)
  • Garnish: small watermelon wedges with rind (optional)

Directions
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.

Serves 4
