Lemon Watermelon Slush

Servings: 8
A delicious and refreshing drink for a very hot summer day. Serve this ice cold drink at barbeques, picnics, or when it's just a sizzling hot day. Remember to serve the slushes in chilled glasses and don't forget to garnish each with fresh mint or miniature chocolate chips, or BOTH!

1 cup lemon juice, freshly squeezed, with pulp (from approximately 4 large lemons)
1/2 cup superfine or granulated sugar
8 cups seeded and diced watermelon
30 to 40 ice cubes

2 tablespoons fresh mint or miniature chocolate chips, for garnish

The slushes must be made in 4 batches.

In a small saucepan, bring lemon juice and sugar to a boil. Stir until all sugar is dissolved and remove from heat. Chill syrup well.

For each batch, place 2 cups of watermelon into blender, add 1/4 of the chilled lemon syrup, and blend until mixed well.

Add ice cubes to blender one at a time (approximately 10 ice cubes per batch), until mixture is thickened. Repeat for 3 remaining batches. Serve in chilled glasses and garnish with fresh mint or miniature chocolate chips.

Makes 8 servings.
