Love your recipes, Gina. Do you know Smart Points for these? Thinking ahead for summer.
Did this with some modification. Froze about 400 grams of watermelon and made up some lemon water with Splenda (heavy on the lemon), and tossed the watermelon into the blender and churned that up with just enough of the lemon water to make into a thick blended margarita texture. Wonderful, light and delicious. Was a HUGE hit with everyone and this non-alcohol delight contained only 39 calories for each martini glass full. A keeper recipe for sure!
I made these last night, delicious! It tastes like summer in a glass.
It is a little early yet for good watermelons so I tried freezing mine and skipping the ice cubes so it didn't water it down…FABULOUS!!!
I belong to a book club….it's called 'Martini Book Club'. We always have a great time because we drink martinis and discuss the book just a little;) The next time I'm hostess, this is it! YUM!
I made these, and at first they were a bit texture-y. There was a lot of watermelon pulp, so I strained them and they were sooooo good.
OMG!!! These were awesome!!! Had to stop myself from making another batch. Gina you're amazing!!! Thanks for the recipes!!
So glad you all liked them! 🙂
I made these last night for my first "ladies night" they were an absolute hit!! So refreshing and guilt free…thanks Gina!!
We had these on the 4th ~ awesome!
Thank you so much Gina! I am a cocktail girl and often my weekend drinks screw up my diet. I really appreciate your healthy and creative spins on amazing drinks!!
yum!!!!! looks wonderful!
melon liqueur is my favorite!!! thanks so much!! I'm running a 1/2 marathon in 2 weeks, so no alcohol until then but you can bet this will be one of the first cocktails I have then!!
Wow this looks so good!
I freeze watermelon all the time. Cube it, put it on a sheet tray, freeze it and then ziploc bag it. My girls LOVE it in their water and I use them instead of ice in smoothies. And now, I'll make martinis! Yay!
this is just in time for the Holiday festivities. Thank you. I made the salpicon and they loved this. I just bought a watermelon and now I'll go get the citron and enjoy this lush fun drink. Thank you. so much.
These look amazing…must go to store now for ingredients!
Because it's only 3 oz alchohol divided by 4 servings. I drank one and thought it was perfect!
OK, I gotta ask how did you get this to 3 Points Plus? Alcohol containing things tend to be much higher than that or am I just missing something? I've had to cut back on beer (being an ale drinker at 5 PP a bottle it's just too much) but I could have one of these on my patio instead if that's right.
Two of my favorite things…watermelon and martinis! I can't wait to make them!
For a virgin watermelon martini replace the alcohol with orange juice.
Need to buy some watermelon so I have an excuse to make this!
Yum! This is the perfect summer drink. Great recipe!
Thank you so much! I was just at one the border and they had something similar but I was afraid of the points…now I can make them at home!
Oh, I will definitely be making these this summer. Yumm.
I am Pregnant but this looks DELICIOUS!! any way to make a Virgin version??
Sara love the idea of freezing the watermelon in ice cubes!!
You read my mind! I have a great watermelon martini recipe. It's similar except I blend up chunk of watermelon and then freeze the liquid in ice cube trays – then I add the frozen cubes, vodka, lemon juice & agave to a blender. Makes a delicious frozen watermelon martini!
Thanks for making my diet much easier…and thank you SO much for keeping the old points! I want to stick with what I KNOW works.
Happy Independence Day!
I had to taste test them to be sure, they were 🙂
This looks too good!
I've been thinking of making something similar! YUM!
