A nice and easy summer drink that is cool and refreshing. Its great for cooling off in the intense heat.
I hear its pretty hot over at Instructables, this is the drink for you and the whole Instructables community. I hope you enjoy it.
Step 1: Ingredients
1/3 cup water
1/4 cup sugar
1 tablespoon lime juice
What I used:
Magic Bullet or Blender
Step 2: Dissolve Sugar
Pour the 1/3 water and 1/4 sugar into a sauce pan at low heat, stir until sugar is dissolved.
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
Cut the watermelon into chunks, amount is to your pleasing.
Step 5: Blend
Use your Magic Bullet or blender to puree the watermelon.
Step 6: Add Syrup and Lime Juice
Add the syrup and the lime juice to the puree (blended) of watermelon. Then re-blend with syrup and lime in.
Step 7: Pour Into Baking Pan
After everything is well blended pour the mixture into a baking pan and then cover with plastic wrap.
Then put in the freezer to freeze.
Step 8: Scrape the Watermelon Ice
Use a fork to scrape the watermelon to lighten the texture then put in a small glass. Then add more water to fill the glass or Sprite or some sort of alcohol, whatever you prefer. Then stir it a little.
Finish with a little slice of watermelon with the rind (watermelon skin) still attached.
