I may be a little premature with this recipe — since it’s more appropriate for ‘summer time’ sipping, but ya know what? I’m still going to share it! This may be a perfect beverage for this coming weekend. The weather is currently forecasted to be sunny and 76 on Saturday. Can you say ‘perfect’!? Only problem I can foresee….I’m not so sure I’d be able to find watermelon…. Oh well!
Anyway, take a look at the below recipe I found while searching for this week’s Thirsty Thursday! Oh my my my… yummy!
The possibilities for enjoying this yummy goodness are endless… barbecues, a day at the lake, neighborhood get together, girl’s night, Bunco and just about anytime a refreshing beverage would hit the spot!
So, what are you waiting for? Are you going to give it a try? Whip up a batch of this refreshingly delicious Watermelon-Moscato Slush!

6 c. watermelon cubes, seeds removed
1/4 c. granulated sugar
1 T. freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 c. Moscato (or other slightly sweet white wine)
Place watermelon cubes, sugar, and lemon juice in a food processor or blender. Blend until smooth. Pour through a strainer to remove the pulp. Place strained liquid in a glass baking dish and stir in the Moscato.
Place the baking dish in the freezer and freeze the mixture for 2 to 3 hours, stirring with a fork every 45 minutes or so to break up ice crystals.
When ready to serve, spoon the watermelon slush into a wine (or other) glass, filling the glass about 3/4 full. Pour in wine and stir.
Enjoy! Cheers! 🍷
Sending you big (((hugs)))
