Summer is here and there is a lot of watermelons in the market. I miss the watermelon seller in India who had a cart outside my apartment. I would walk out with the biggest bowl i had and he would cut the watermelon into pieces for me. Also, if the watermelon was bad than he would pick another. I have no idea how to buy the perfect watermelon. It ty to do what I read on google. Sometimes it is a hit and sometimes a miss.

This time I bought 2 seedless watermelons; they are the smaller variety; one was rotten and one was good. I removed the rind and chopped the watermelon in pieces. By the way, I have seen recipes for watermelon rind, I have not tried any; maybe another day!

This is easy to make and very refreshing on a hot summer day. I sometimes freeze them in an ice cube tray. Take out what you need and use.


  • 5 cups chopped watermelon
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 3 tbsp mint leaves plus more for garnish
  • 2 tbsp sugar (optional)
  • If making mocktails- club soda
  • if making a cocktail- bacardi


You can do this two ways.

  1. Blend the watermelon with all the ingredients except for the soda and the bacardi. Freeze for two hours. Blend again in blender to make a slushie
  2. Freeze watermelon pieces. Then blend with sugar and mint
  3. Serve extras in an ice cube tray for later use.

To Serve

Serve this three ways

  1. Pour the slush into a glass and serve with a lime and some mint
  2. Pour watermelon slush into a tall glass (1/2 the glass) or add a 7-8 frozen cubes of watermelon juice . Top with club soda and serve
  3. Pour the slush into a glass. Add 2 – 3 tablespoons of bacardi and serve with a lime and some mint
