Recipe

The trashy cook should not be stoveside too long without a drink in hand. And preferably this drink. You don’t have to go overboard with the postmodern, anxiously ironic bit: this is ambrosia for even the good-taste gods.

But if on the other hand you’re concerned that commendation might detract from its vulgar charm, just make it and drink it, wearing mules to match.

The watermelon doesn’t come frozen, by the way, engaging thought though that is: just buy it, slice it, chunk it, stuff it into suitable bags and stash them vibrantly in the freezer.

Yield : Serves 2

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup (or to taste) light rum
  • juice of 1 good-sized lime
  • 1 heaping tablespoon confectioners’ sugar
  • approx. 10 2-inch cubes of frozen watermelon

Directions

Put all the above ingredients in a blender and blitz to a pinkly foamy purée. Pour into two waiting margarita glasses—and tip back, bangles jangling.

    This recipe also works well made in an ice cream maker without freezing the watermelon in advance.

    If you dont have time to wait for the watermelon to freeze, use icecubes, experiment with the ratio of ice to watermelon for a slushier mix use more ice - you may want a desert spoon.
