Watermelon Lemonade Vodka Slush...

This coming weekend we will be celebrating Labor Day. 
Labor Day is the unofficial end of summer and a chance to enjoy one last hoop-la before fall.
In celebration of the holiday, I am sharing a very delish adult beverage with you!

This mixed drink idea stemmed from The Wife of a Dairyman.  Her kids had a lemonade stand this summer.  One day they make watermelon lemonade and that got the wheels in my noggin turnin'.

You will need a watermelon....obviously....
 Did you know that you should pick a watermelon that is heavy for its size?

Puree and strain the pulp from your watermelon...
Squeeze about 4 or 5 lemons.  If you don't have any lemons, you can use lemon juice...
4 cups of water...
 2 cups of Vodka...
You will need sugar as well, but I failed to take a pic of that!


 Yum!...
Watermelon Lemonade Vodka Slush

3 c. watermelon juice
1 c. lemon juice
4 c. boiling water
1 c. white sugar
2 c. Vodka

Puree and strain watermelon.
Squeeze lemons.
Boil water.
Combine all ingredients.  Stir until sugar is dissolved.

Pour into large container with a lid.
Freeze for at least 4 hours.

Scoop out spoonfuls into a glass and top with Sprite of 7-Up.

Now go and enjoy one last hoop-la of the summer while drinking this.  Super yummy!
