Ingredients:

 

  • 4 cups cubed, seeded watermelon
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • Vodka, optional

 

Directions:

 

  1. Cut the watermelon into cubes.  Place in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet and freeze until completely frozen, like ice cubes, for at least 2 hours.
  2. While freezing the watermelon, cook ½ cup sugar and ½ cup water in a small saucepan over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the sugar is completely melted, which takes about 5 minutes.  Cool completely to room temperature, about 1 hour.
  3. When the watermelon is completely frozen, put half in a blender. Pour the syrup into the blender. Add the lemon juice, and blend until the mixture is mostly smooth, pushing it down with a wooden spoon or spatula if needed. Add the remaining watermelon, and continue to blend until the mixture is completely smooth.
  4. Pour into glasses and enjoy!
