this is such a refreshing in the summer. since watermelon is my hubby favorite fruit, i try to think of different ways to use watermelon. try this refreshing watermelon spritzer too!
- in a small pan over medium heat, add the water and sugar. stir until sugar dissolves. remove from heat and let cool.
- blend the watermelon in a blender or food processor until smooth. strain through a sieve to remove pulp and seeds in to medium sized bowl. add the cooled simple syrup and lemon juice; stir. add the watermelon mixture to a 9x13 inch pan and place in the freezer. freeze for an hour and then remove from the freezer and scrape with 2 forks to break up the ice. place in the freezer again in 30 minutes intervals scarping until completely frozen crystals have formed. scoop into pretty glasses or bowls and garnish with fresh mint.
