Watermelon-Moscato Slush

Watermelon-Moscato Slush is one of our favorite summer treats.  Just grab a big juicy watermelon and some semi-sweet white wine to whip up this refreshingly delicious summer fun!



I love so many things about summer.  Outdoor cooking ... Concerts in the park ... 4th of July fireworks ... Trips to the beach or the lake ... Back-yard gatherings ... There are always so many fun adventures to be had!

Know what else I love about summer?  Watermelon.

Yes, it's one of my favorite summer treats.  Oh, and I love sipping refreshing, crisp, light-bodied wines ... they're just perfect for helping beat the summer heat, too.  And then I had a crazy idea ... one of those totally  brilliantly crazy ideas.  How about putting watermelon and wine together?  Wouldn't that make the perfect refreshingly delicious, fun summer treat?

For a watermelon and wine lover, the answer is a resounding YES!

So with the help of one big sweet-&-juicy watermelon and a cold bottle of Moscato, this fabulous Watermelon-Moscato Slush was born.

Watermelon-Moscato Slush ... grab a big juicy watermelon and some semi-sweet white wine to whip up this refreshingly delicious summer fun.

With four simple ingredients, and just a little whirling in a food processor or blender, this slush whips up in a flash.

Simply combine some watermelon cubes, a bit of sugar, and a squeeze of fresh lemon juice in a food processor {or blender} ...


... and give the mixture a whirl to create a watermelon puree.  Then strain the puree to remove any pulp hunks ...


Then mix in a little Moscato, and freeze ... that's all!

When you're ready to enjoy this cool-&-refreshing summer sipper, scrape some of the slush into a glass ...


Then pour in some more wine and enjoy the watermelon fun!


Headed out to the park, to the lake, or perhaps to the beach and want to bring this along? ... What a great idea.  Toss the slush and a bottle of wine into the cooler to take with you.

It's so easy to whip up a batch of this refreshing Watermelon-Moscato Slush to get ready for some delicious summer fun!

(Printable recipe)
Ingredients
  • 6 c. watermelon cubes, seeds removed*
  • 1/4 c. granulated sugar
  • 1 T. freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 c. Moscato {or other slightly sweet white wine}
  • additional Moscato for serving
Directions
  1. Place watermelon cubes in a food processor or blender. Blend until smooth. Place a strainer over a large bowl or 9x13-inch glass baking dish. Pour processed watermelon through the strainer to remove the pulp, reserving the strained juice.
  2. Stir granulated sugar and lemon juice into the watermelon juice until the sugar is fully dissolved. Stir in Moscato.
  3. Place the bowl or baking dish in the freezer and freeze the mixture for 2 to 3 hours, stirring with a fork every 45 minutes or so to break up ice crystals.
  4. When ready to serve, spoon watermelon slush into a wine (or other) glass, filling the glass about 3/4 full. Pour in additional wine and stir. Garnish as desired.
*  Six cups watermelon cubes, pureed and strained, yields about 4 cups watermelon juice.  You can use watermelon juice released and collected when cutting up a whole watermelon instead, for all or part of the pureed juice.

Enjoy!
