Frozen Watermelon Slush

Prep time: 10 minutes (+ time to freeze watermelon)
Cook time: n/a
Serves: 4-6


6 c. seedless watermelon, cut into small chunks and frozen
2 c. chilled brewed Tazo® Passion® tea (or water)*
¼ c. fresh lime juice
2 T. maple syrup
2 T. fresh mint
6-8 large ice cubes (optional)
4-6 oz. premium vodka (optional)

Garnish: (optional)
Sprigs of fresh mint
Small watermelon wedges

*Tip: Although it is optional, Tazo® Passion® tea greatly enhances the flavor of this recipe when compared to using plain water.


  1. Add frozen watermelon, chilled tea (or water), lime juice, maple syrup, and fresh mint to a high-powered blender. Blend on high until thoroughly combined, approximately 2-3 minutes. Add ice cubes, if necessary, to achieve desired consistency.

  2. Pour watermelon mixture into four chilled glasses and top each with a 1 to 1½ oz. floater of premium vodka, if desired. Garnish with sprigs of fresh mint and/or watermelon wedges, if using, and serve immediately. Enjoy!
