Beat the Heat with this Watermelon Treat
It’s hot here in Austin.
You know that “fry an egg on the sidewalk” kind of hot you see in movies? Yeah, well, it's real in the summer. We’ve been trying to stay hydrated and happy, but after we hit 101° all bets are off and we start melting.
So, it's time to turn your Tito's cocktail into a poptail. Just toss everything in a blender, fill up re-sealable popsicle molds, and freeze them overnight!
Blend up a batch of Watermelon Poptails to beat the heat. This boozy treat will cool you off in no time.
4 cups frozen cubed watermelon
4 mint sprigs
1 pinch lime zest
2 tbsp agave nectar (or to taste)
1 cup ice
Combine Tito’s Handmade Vodka, frozen watermelon, mint leaves, fresh lime juice (use a few limes for juice and others for garnishes), lime zest, agave nectar, and ice in a high-speed blender.
Serve in copper mugs with lime wedges and mint leaves. Can be enjoyed by spoon or straw.
Makes 4 drinks or about 12 popsicles.
If you’re in a pinch for time and didn’t freeze your watermelon, you can yield similar results by using the same amount of watermelon, simply add additional ice until your drink reaches a frozen sorbet-like consistency.
