This Frozen Watermelon Margarita Slushee is a refreshing, subtle nod to summer.
Earlier this summer I got to spend a weekend with my sister, cousins and aunt going on a little wine tour. This Frozen Watermelon Margarita Slushee is a result of that trip.
My cousin had a birthday coming up so she started celebrating a month in advance (I like her style!) and she wanted to do this tour. We got a great deal on Groupon for a day trip so we went for it.
We met the bus in Austin and it took us to the Fredericksburg area to tour three different wineries. All of the wineries we visited were different in aesthetic and decor. My favorite of the three was the 290 Wine Castle because, duh, it resembled a castle! Not to mention they also served sangria and a pretty great pizza. The views were also amazing so that was a definite plus.
The sangria tasted more like a watermelon slushee to me so I knew I had to make that when I got back. The recipe is a straight up margarita recipe with the addition of frozen watermelon and some ice cubes. I also like to throw in some pebble ice in the glass to keep it a little chilled.
This is perfect refreshing adult beverage to have by the pool but this Texas heat will make it melt pretty darn quick. I’ve been hanging out at the pool every chance I get so that’s been my summer and the reason I’m so late posting this recipe. I’m almost ready to start with the fall recipes and kind of skipped right over summer. But I’m not mad about it.
I hope you enjoy this Frozen Watermelon Margarita Slushee before summer officially ends. You can always freeze watermelon chunks like I’ve done to have this any time of the year.
