Watermelon Screwdrivers

Watermelon Screwdriver

Serves 4 to 6
Hands-on time: 20 minutes
Total preparation time: 4 1/2 hours (Due to freezing)

1 pound cubed watermelon flesh, about 5 cups
1 quart orange juice, preferably fresh
3/4 cup vodka or to taste

Remove all the seeds from the watermelon and place in a blender. Blend the melon until liquid. Pour into an ice cube tray. Freeze until solid, at least 4 hours. In a pitcher, combine the orange juice and vodka. Place 3 frozen watermelon cubes in each glass, pour in the orange juice mixture, and serve immediately.

You can freeze anything in an ice cube tray and then float it in a drink. Fruit is an excellent candidate, any kind, pureed and strained (optional – I don’t mind seeds) will make a lovely addition to a summer drink. Or herbal or regular tea. They can be added to water, sparkling water, any juice or fresh lemonade. If you want to make it an adult beverage you can even top it off with a little vodka, rum or gin.
