Absolutely incredible! It is a little strong, so you may want to decrease the amount of vodka, as said in another review. But, like them, I managed. ;) FYI simply syrup is 1 cup sugar, 1 cup water, bring to boil in medium saucepan, stir, let cool (see recipe on this site). I can't say enough about this drink - it is awesome! Thank You!!! Read More

This recipie made a lot more than just 4 martini glass fulls for me. I used 3/4 cup vodka but it still tastes strong (and I'm definitely not a 'weak drink' kinda' gal!) Also - I was impatient and only let the watermelon puree stay in the freezer for an hour - letting this freeze seems like a crucial step (esp to achieve the slushy consistency that will make this drink awesome.) Let me take another sip.... ahhh... maybe a little more melon liquour? The triple sec suggestion sounds like a good one. Maybe a tad more simple syrup? Then again maybe it's my watermelon that is not the sweetest? (Now that I'm buzzed and can't stop adding my opinions... I think it's best I leave! I froze the leftover concoction and will pop it in the blender again tomorrow and see how it fares when it's in a slushy state.) Happy sipping! :) Read More

Yum! How refreshing on those hot summer days. I would suggest starting off with 1/2 of the vodka and then adding more to taste. It was a little strong for us -- but we managed! Read More

I used frozen cubed watermelon & then pureed it instead of pureeing & then freezing in ice cubes. I thought my way aws easier. Hubby liked this better but I think I preferred the watermelon margarita (from allrecipes) ...both are excellent though. Read More

Freeze the watermelon the night before. I used watermelon flavored vodka and left out the melon liquor and they were delicious. Not too sweet but very yummy. Perfect for a summer day or out by the pool and easy to make. YUM! Read More
