Frozen Watermelon


I LOVE watermelon.  And when it’s so hot outside, it’s the most refreshing treat.  Whole watermelons are typically crispier than their pre-cut counterparts, but I’m not often able to eat the whole thing before it goes bad. Cue:  frozen watermelon. 


Serve the frozen watermelon cubes in fun, fancy cocktail glasses (these are gold-rimmed champagne coupes we received as a wedding gift).  Garnish with mint leaves and lime, then pour sparkling water, kombucha or even lemonade over top (and maybe even a splash of vodka?!).
