Party Drinks - Watermelon, Kiwi, Lemon

Frozen fruity party drinks are perfect for summer entertaining when we are looking for ways to beat the heat and quench our thirst. Watermelon, kiwi and lemon are three refreshing oldies but goodies that are easy to make and will make a great presentation at your next party or Memorial Day celebration.

Your guests are sure to love them :  Frozen Watermelon Frosty , Frozen Kiwi Mojito or Middle Eastern Lemonade- with or without alcohol . These thirst quenchers are made from natural fruit and other healthy ingredients and are real crowd pleasers!

Frozen Watermelon Frosty   -
This easy drink calls for frozen watermelon chunks. I cut up my watermelon into bite size chunks and then freeze in baggies overnight. The next day you can enjoy the most refreshing drink ever!!Alcoholic or virgin, it tastes great both ways. ( more ingredients in the recipe)

Frozen Kiwi Mojito  ( plus a tutorial on how to grow and dry mint)- We adore the mint in the mojitos and adding kiwi is an unusual twist on a common drink. Easy, fun, gluten free ,different, and tasty.

Middle Eastern Lemonade -
This recipe is an old family favorite.With lots of fresh lemon, maple syrup and a secret ingredient, it will dazzle your guests. It's non alcoholic , but I'm sure you could spike it to make a hard lemonade!

  1. Hi Judee, these drinks look stellar! I especially love the kiwi mojito concept--I never would have thought of it! I've also never tried the watermelon slushee, but it sounds completely refreshing. Thanks for the inspiration!

    1. You absolutely have to try the Watermelon Frosty. It is the best in hot weather and a great way to use up left over watermelon.

    1. Mae,
      I'm with you on that one- I stick to red wine- who needs all the extra calories-
