I was super excited to try this after seeing the idea on the Rachael Ray show. It was one of those "why-didn't-I-think-of-that?" moments! I just had to share here on Joyously Domestic! What a fun idea for summertime drinks - alcoholic or otherwise. This is more of a method than an actual recipe. And, it's pretty simple, but does takes a little planning. You'll need to prep and freeze the cubes in advance, obviously. Once the cubes are frozen on a sheet pan, they can be popped into a plastic zip-top baggie, then placed back into the freezer until needed. Kids and adults alike love this idea. They keep drinks super cold without diluting them.
No more watered-down drinks from using traditional ice cubes. The watermelon will subtly flavor your beverage. And, you'll be able to nibble on the watermelon as you drink or when your beverage is gone.
Seedless watermelon (half or whole - depending on desired amount of cubes)
Cut your melon into 1 1/2 inch slices. Then, cut off all of the rind (including the white part).
Cut each slice into cubes roughly the size of ice cubes.
Place cubes in a single layer on a baking tray or sheet pan.
Wrap the tray loosely in plastic wrap and freeze for several hours (or until cubes are completely frozen). Serve in your favorite summer drinks.
If you don't plan to use the cubes right after they're frozen, seal them up in a zip-top bag!
