NOLET’S Silver
Watermelon Mint Slushy

When it’s hot outside, there are few things as cooling as watermelon & mint. Add a splash of NOLET’S Silver and it’s a party. This recipe requires a little prep, so that when you’re ready to make a batch, all you need to do is blend and serve. Makes approximately 8 cocktails.

1 cup NOLET’S Silver
1 Fresh Watermelon Cubed (reserving some for garnish)
Limes – 2 for Syrup and more for garnish
Mint for garnish
Optional Black Sesame Seeds for Garnish

Cut a large watermelon into ice cube-sized chunks (approx. 1 1/2 inches). Place cubes on a parchment or waxed paper-lined tray spaced apart and freeze for 2 hours or just until frozen. If you’re not using them for a while, put cubes in an airtight container & store them in the freezer.

Mint Lime Syrup
1 cup Sugar
1/4 cup Fresh Lime Juice (juice of about 2 limes)
1 bunch of Fresh Mint
3/4 cup Water

Combine ingredients in a medium saucepan and heat on medium until sugar dissolves. Let sit while cooling. Once cooled, strain into a container with a lid and refrigerate.

For the cocktails, add watermelon chunks to the blender with 1/2 cup of syrup (the amount should be approximately 6 cups). Blend until the consistency is that of a slushy. Add NOLET’S Silver Gin, pour and garnish with watermelon, mint and a sprinkle of black sesame seeds.
