Take some shelter from the heat and rustle up these Watermelon and Gin ice lollies… PS a Dixie Cup is just a small paper cup.


  • 2-1/2 cups seedless watermelon, cut into cubes
  • 1/3 cup seltzer water
  • 3 ounces frozen limeade
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 cup gin
  • Mint leaves
  • 8 Dixie cups
  • 8 wooden ice cream spoons


  1. Place watermelon, water, limeade, sugar, gin and a few mint leaves into a blender. Blend on high until mixture is smooth.
  2. Pour about two to three ounces of mixture into each Dixie cup. Place on a baking sheet and freeze for about two hours. Carefully insert the wooden spoon into each cup about halfway in. Re-freeze another four to six hours or until set.
  3. To remove the Popsicle, carefully peel the paper cup away and very gently remove the bottom of the cup. Eat immediately or re-freeze.
