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!
