The Watermelon Daiquiri is the absolute perfect cocktail for summertime enjoyment! Easy to prepare and oh so good, you'll love this one.Summer is looming (I promise those of you with snow and cold – it IS coming).  You have to have some fun summery drinks for summer right?

I like adding different things to drinks – makes life much more fun. And, to be honest, adding things that are healthy? Well who doesn’t love that?  I mean if I can have a cocktail and get some of my fruits/veggies in for the day? Two-birds-one-stone kind of thing! It’s why I use V-8 in my Bloody Marys (and because it has better flavor …)!

This drink is definitely a “choose your own flavor” kind of drink. I used my Lemon Head Vodka. Some other great choices? Coconut (i.e. Malibu) Rum, Captain Morgan, Orange Vodka, etc. I don’t recommend using a plain vodka or rum, but if that’s all you have it’s all you have!

Another note, I used frozen watermelon. If you do not have frozen, use less watermelon and add some ice. You may not even need to add the splash of club (that wasn’t for flavor as much as it was to thin it out).

So sit back, relax, and enjoy a taste of summer!

  15. This totally reminds me of granitas in Sicily! They serve them as you do, with cream, but for breakfast and dip a brioche in them! Sounds crazy, but I was hooked. They don’t have watermelon flavor, but I think they should! Yum!

  16. I love this idea! I actually have the Zoku Ice Pop maker set and definitely plan to make these into ice pops (both with and without the alcohol). Can’t wait to try this out.

  17. Yum!!! and Yes please! Visiting from the SITS link up.

  18. This looks fantastic! Linking up from the SITS Girls throwback Thurs link-up! Nice to meet you! Just Followed you on Twitter/FB etc
    Love your recipe layout–looks great. I need to do that for my cocktails.
    cheers!
