Refreshing Watermelon Slushie Cocktail

I don’t know what it is about watermelon that I love so much, but every summer I eat my weight in it. I figured it was about time to start drinking it, too.

These refreshing slushies combine two of my favorite summer fruits, watermelon and raspberries. A bit of lime juice adds a zingy twist. Tart lime juice in contrast with sweet fruit is a nice pairing.

This is summer in a glass. Drinking watermelon and berries and slurping up every last drop.

The slushies go down fast, easy, and you’ll want a refill before you know it.

It’s definitely 5 o’clock somewhere!

How to Make a Watermelon Vodka Slush 

These alcoholic slushies are a breeze to make! Simply add all the ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth. 

I like to garnish my slushies with fresh fruit, like watermelon wedges and lime. 

Can These Slushies Be Made Non-Alcoholic? 

I add raspberry vodka and watermelon schnapps to make these adult slushies, but you can keep them virgin if you’d like. I’d prefer not to.

Can I Use Other Berries? 

Yes, feel free to mix and match whatever frozen berries you have on hand. Watermelon pairs well with any berry!

Tips for Making Watermelon Vodka Slushies 

In advance of blending the drinks, dice and freeze the watermelon for an hour.

If you’re using fresh raspberries rather than frozen (I use frozen and save fresh for eating), freeze them, too. That way you’re blending nearly-frozen fruit so you don’t need to add ice, which would water down the slushies.

Extra slushie mixture can be kept in the freezer for up to 1 month by placing freezer-safe glasses inside a large ziplock bag to avoid freezer smells; allow to thaw for about 45 minutes before stirring and serving.

  1. These are so yummy! I had bought a watermelon to make my ‘Tipsy Pops’ and when I saw your recipe and made both! (I grow my own raspberries) I used Ketel One vodka and Midori in mine. Thank you for the recipe.

    1. Ketel One vodka and Midori and homegrown raspberries sounds pretty amazing! Glad you enjoyed the drink!

  2. These are soooo good! I got the link from Buzzfeed and I’m glad I did! Watermelon pucker schnapps and extra lime juice made it extra tasty. Not overly sweet, which I love! Thank you :)

    1. Glad you found the link, Courtney, and that you loved these! Watermelon Pucker is good stuff :)

  3. I could sure go for one of these right about now on a warm summer day like today! These look so yummy. :)

  4. Can I have about 17 of these right now?? Such a long sleepless weekend — I need all the summer relaxation I can get! ;) Love how healthy these are too, compared to the 7-11 slurpees I grew up chugging. We’d beg my mom to go nearly every afternoon after elementary school because it was just around the corner from school, but she only agreed about every other week. Such a treat, but these would be way better!

    1. I live like 2 blocks from a 7-11 and a few times a week, slurpees do happen. I have a 7 year old, what can I say :)

      1. With your adorable daughter, it’s only 2 times a week? I’d totally cave more; I’m a pushover… So I’m impressed!! :)

  5. Hi Averie,

    It has been so hot here and I am so ready for a boozy slushie :) I’ll have to make sure I don’t down both glasses within 5 minutes.

    Such a great and easy recipe. Thanks :D

  6. Freakin gorgeous girl! Sharing on FB tomorrow – and pinned of course :) Hope you’re having a great start to your weekend!

  7. I cannot wait to try this. It has been so hot where I live, so I have been looking for a delicious way to cool down. This sounds absolutely perfect!
