What Is In A Watermelon Lime Slush?

  • Frozen Watermelon Chunks
  • Ice
  • Ginger Ale
  • Fresh Squeezed Lime Juice
  • Cane Sugar
  • Water
Ingredients are frozen watermelon, lime juice, water, ice, and ginger ale soda.

10 Minutes to Refreshing Slush Heaven

First things first, cut your fresh watermelon in small pieces and place in a single layer on a cookie sheet. Throw that in the freezer overnight and make sure your watermelon chunks are frozen solid before blending.

Back to the Watermelon Lime Slush, this drink is so easy! Literally all you do is throw everything into your blender and blend until smooth. There is no fancy method and you can’t mess it up.

Troubleshooting Your Watermelon Lime Slush

Too thick? Add a tablespoon more of ginger ale or lime juice.

Too thin? Add a 1/4 more of frozen watermelon.

Not sweet enough? Some watermelon isn’t very sweet so you may want to add more cane sugar. I recommend a tablespoon at a time.

Tips For The Very Best Watermelon Lime Slush

  • Use freshly squeezed lime juice. Store-bought lime juice just isn’t the same.
  • Blend it up as you are serving it. This slush doesn’t store well in the refrigerator or freezer and it melts quickly. Serving it as you need it, and immediately, is best.
  • Garnish is everything. To make this slush even more fun, add mini watermelon slices, lime slices, and fun straws.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What if I don’t have a blender? For this slush a food processor of any size works just as well as a blender. You will definitely want a blender or food processor to make this though.

Can I add alcohol? Yes, of course! Vodka, coconut rum, or even tequila would taste delicious in this!

Do the watermelon chunks have to be frozen? Yes, yes, yes! The slush consistency comes from the combination of frozen watermelon and ice. If the watermelon chunks are at room temperature or even refrigerated, all you will have is a liquid juice.
