Step 3: Chill the Syrup (dissolved sugar and water)

Pour the syrup into the small bowl, and place the small bowl with the syrup in the larger bowl that is filled with cold water and ice, stir syrup until cooled.

Step 4: Watermelon

Where did you get the idea to make the syrup? could you use grenadine instead? Do you think it would work with another type of fruit such as peaches?

Try it and tell me how it works out

Do you suppose you could substitute vodka for the water to make it an adult drink?
Blechmen (author)  tleet598 months ago
Of course but my suggestion would be to fill halfway with the watermelon ice then half with the vodka and wait a little for the ice to melt and then drink.

Might be easier to use an ice-cream machine? Will have to try that when summer is here again. Sounds dlicious
Blechmen (author)  Dumblabrat9 months ago
I agree with you, hmmm if only I had an ice cream machine.... Imagine the possibilities, lol I'll show you what I can do with one if I win the Frozen Treats contest, so be sure to vote.
Thanks:

Only took 5min of my time to make this, perfect!

I am SO going to suggest this to the brides we have to replace their little signature cocktails. THIS is great, pretty, and hey, surprisingly easy and could very well be on their "activity"list for guests. Watermelon stand down the road? CHECK! Honkin big fridge to store them and keep them chilled? CHECK! Blender, etc? Check! Wonderful recipe? CHECK!!!! thanks!
Blechmen (author)  Brightfield Farm9 months ago
Haha thanks so much, I feel so honored, tell me if this works out and how it was, and I don`t usually do these types of Instructables so a vote is much appreciated and I will do more of these. thanks

I freeze my watermelon cubes in a ziploc bag. Lay it flat in the freezer. You can then get frozen chunks to use in the bullet blender. Take a meat mallet to hit the bag so the cubes break apart if needed. Fill the rest of the cup with liquid like lemonade or fruit drink. Blend to get a watermelon slushie. I almost burned out my bullet blender when I did frozen strawberries without chunking them up first and kept on running it to blend all the little chunks it missed.

Can't u just omit the sugar?
Isn't it sweet enough? Will it not set up without it??
Blechmen (author)  xUr Momx9 months ago
yes you don't need to add the sugar it's only to make it a little sweeter, I'm sure it will taste just as good without it. And its pretty sweet without the sugar.
