How do you cool down a hot summer day? A tall glass of lemonade? A juicy slice of watermelon? Those are my answers and I thought what a great idea to combine the two to create Refreshing Watermelon Lemonade Slushies.

Watermelon and lemonade are two great ways to stay cool during the dog days of summer. Lemonade quenches the thirst and is the perfect summer drink. Watermelons are full of flavor and sweetness this time a year. I sure do miss it come winter. But for right now icy and slushy sounds refreshing.

Skip the ice in this recipe and just freeze your watermelon ahead of time. This sweet summer cooler is perfect for a party or barbecue. Is it 5 o'clock? Make it an adult cocktail by adding vodka.  

This recipe couldn't get any easier.
