For when you’re craving a cocktail that can cool you off in the summer heat, this Frozen Watermelon Daiquiri is the answer, taking almost no time to prepare (and with just a handful of ingredients)!
Living in Europe, all of our kitchen appliances are pretty small. Small oven, small fridge, small freezer, you get the point. And despite having a pretty small freezer, there is one thing I insist on having in the freezer at all times.
Slushies. Cocktail slushies, to be specific. The alcohol prevents the slushy from freezing completely, meaning you can scoop up a refreshing treat whenever you want (or need). Today’s slush? Frozen Watermelon Daiquiri!
This daiquiri finds its roots in my food hoarding. Despite having that previously mentioned tiny freezer, I tend to freeze all leftovers. I hate the idea of throwing away food, so our freezer is packed with an array of chopped vegetables and fruits for use in future stir fries or banana breads or smoothies.
Obviously watermelon, which always gives you way more fruit that you expect or need, takes up a considerable amount of space in said freezer. But frozen watermelon is exactly what we need for these daiquiris!
To make these Frozen Watermelon Daiquiris, just throw frozen watermelon into a blender along with some Malibu, lime juice and sugar. Blend until smooth and you’re good to go! You can store leftovers in a freezer-safe container or baggie for tasty slushies anytime.
