PREP TIME: 15 mins + extra for setting | SERVES 8

INGREDIENTS

  • ½ watermelon, chopped
  • 500ml (2 cups) watermelon juice
  • 60ml (¼ cup) vodka or more to taste

METHOD

BLEND the watermelon until smooth, then pour through a sieve into a measuring jug to make 500 ml (2 cups). Stir in the vodka.

POUR into 30ml shot glasses and place in the freezer. Just as the ices begin to set, after about 1½ hours, place the lolly sticks in the glasses.

ALLOW to freeze for a few hours until completely set.

REMOVE from the freezer and give the sticks a good turn – the ices should slip out easily. Serve in an ice bucket to make the ices last a little longer.

And voilà, you’ve just become the hostess with the mostess serving your guest refreshing watermelon and vodka ices.
