Cook time: 10 minutes

Servings: 4


  • cubed watermelon, cubed
  • 1 cup water
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 handful ice, plus more for serving
  • 1 sprig fresh mint, for garnish


In a small saucepan, mix water and sugar and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Cook until sugar completely dissolves. Remove from heat and let cool.

In a blender, puree the watermelon, sugar syrup, lemon juice and ice until smooth. Pour over ice in pretty glasses; garnish with mint and watermelon wedges. Can be served with vodka as an adult beverage!
