I feel compelled to talk about the weather. Which makes me feel like an old fart.

The weather was always a popular topic of conversation with my aging relatives. You could be guaranteed that “how’s the weather been?” was going to be the first question out of their mouths when they telephoned. Whoa. I just typed the word “telephone”. Not cell phone. That felt weird.

But in my defense, the weather has been very note-able here in Seattle lately. I think we are on a stretch of 2+ weeks now of clear skies and 80-90 degree temperatures. And not a drop of rain (although I think that’s about to change very soon). So I’m going to talk about the weather. And complain that it’s as hot as Hades over here. And then convince you to make cold, refreshing, alcoholic beverages. Because that’s what I do. And it’s Friday. Obviously.

Did I mention these slushies have a measly five ingredients? One of which is ice and shouldn’t really count as an ingredient. And did I also mention that all you have to do is chop up some watermelon and push the button on your blender? Heck, you don’t even have to chop up the watermelon. You can buy the stuff from the grocery store that’s all ready cut up. Be lazy. I won’t tell!

I used my Homemade Limoncello in this recipe. But any store bought version will be delicious in these slushies.

Stay cool this weekend, friends!



Watermelon Limoncello Prosecco Slushies

Serves 4

Watermelon Limoncello Prosecco Slushies


  • 4 cups seedless watermelon, cubed
  • 1 cup ice
  • 1-2 tsp. sugar (optional)
  • 3/4 cups limoncello
  • 3/4 cups Prosecco (or other sparkling white wine)
  • Fresh mint and lemon slices for garnish, if desired


  1. Place the cubed watermelon in your freezer for 1-2 hours (longer is OK too).
  2. Once the watermelon is frozen, add it to your blender along with the ice, sugar and limoncello. Blend on high for 1-2 minutes, or until the mixture is smooth. Add the Prosecco and blend until just combined, about 10-20 seconds.
  3. Pour into glasses and serve immediately. Garnish with fresh mint and lemon slices, if desired.


  • I want to throw a BBQ just so I can serve this!


    • That sounds like an excellent plan. And can you invite me? 🙂

  • Such a perfect drink for summer, love these! I feel old when I talk about the weather too:)


    • I know, right? Guess I better find something really exciting to do this weekend so I have something better to talk about next week!

  • What a perfect summer drink! I’ve never had limoncello as a drink, but I’ve had limoncello gelato and it’s by far my favorite!! I love it so much. This sounds so good and refreshing for summer. I don’t drink a lot, but this sounds like it’d be a fun drink on a hot weekend barbecue or something! Again, beautiful photos.


    • Oohhhh….I really want to make a limoncello gelato or sorbet. Yum! Sounds so good right now!

  • Perfect drink for summer. Thanks for sharing.


    • Glad you think so! It’s so easy and delicious!

  • Talking about the weather is also something I’ve found to be very ubiquitous in workplace settings, too! It’s just something innocuous that could rarely offend anyone 😉 But speaking of the weather, it’s 94 where I am in Connecticut, with 80% humidity. This smoothie looks like HEAVEN right now!!


    • So true! Crazy hot and humid here too! I’m so over this humidity!

  • I also have to go grab your homemade Limoncello recipe!! Then I’m all over these bad boys!!


    • Nice! I know you’ll love ’em. Cheers, friend!

  • Let’s see…I have a bunch of watermelon left over from a barbecue I hosted last night, a bottle of limoncello in the freezer and Prosecco in the fridge. Seems the stars are aligned perfectly for this to happen today!


    • It certainly does seem that way, Barb!

  • Hehe. I totally talk about the weather too!
    Now I just wish I lived closer to Barb!


    • Ha! It would probably be dangerous if we all lived close together!
