This was the best summertime drink this season I had soo much leftover watermelon from the 4th of July, that I didn't want not one piece to go to waste!! Froze up a cup to a cup & a 1/4th in individual baggies and waited ;-) Had to make my own drink mix with unsweetened drink mix and sugar and followed the recipe like stated.

I ended up adding a TBSP more because I believe the pre-made stuff is more concentrated then mine...but however, it took all of a couple of minutes to pull things to one stop and whip in a matter of seconds...TY TY TY this was the best, now I can make it with a moments notice on the fly! YUM!



1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 cup water + 2 cups water
3 cups fresh strawberries, hulls removed
3/4 cup fresh-squeezed lemon juice (from 6-8 large lemons)
3/4 cup vodka
1/3 cup Cointreau liqueur
Additional strawberries and lemon slices for garnish, if desired

  • Add sugar and 1 cup water to a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally, until sugar has dissolved. Remove from heat and add remaining 2 cups water. Add to the pitcher of a blender along with strawberries, lemon juice, vodka, and Cointreau. Puree until completely smooth.
  • Pour into a large freezer-safe container and seal with lid or plastic wrap. Carefully transfer to freezer. Freeze until solid, 4-6 hours.
  • Remove from freezer. Scrape with a fork to loosen ice; stir with a spoon to mix ice and the rest of the ingredients back together if necessary. Spoon into glasses, decorate the glass with a strawberry and a lemon slice if desired, and serve with a decorative straw and a spoon.
