There’s a Tex-Mex restaurant chain in the South Bay that’s known for their slushie cocktails. Behind the counter you’ll find slushie machines churning house-made margarita mixtures that they incorporate into other cocktails. While the food is fresh and tasty, these drinks are the real highlight. I’ve tried to replicate these drinks with this Cucumber Melon Cocktail Slushie recipe. It’s quick and simple, and makes a refreshing summer cocktail.

A cocktail slushie is often a simple mixture of alcohol, ice and flavored syrup. The sugar helps consistency and prevents it from freezing solid. I’ve lightened up the Cucumber Melon Cocktail Slushie by using naturally-sweet fruit instead of sugary or sweetened syrups.

Tips for the best cocktail slushie:

  • Use frozen fruit instead of ice. Freezing the honeydew ahead of time to use as ‘ice’ for this frozen slushie cocktail prevents watered-down flavor.
  • Fruit should be very ripe. Since you’re not adding sugar or syrups, use ripe fruit for natural sweetness
  • Blend in a high-speed blender or even a food processor. A standard blender most likely will not have enough powder to create the thick slushie texture. If using a regular blender, add a bit of water or juice.
  • Use a quality vodka for better flavor.
