Ingredients You Need for this Slushy Mixed Drink
The key ingredient in this strawberry watermelon rum White Claw slushie is of course the watermelon White Claw itself. You are also going to need frozen strawberries and watermelon.
Agave nectar makes a good sweetener, although you can use any kind of liquid sugar or sweetener you like. Don’t use granular sugar; you do need to use something in liquid form. Watermelon rum also goes into the mix to add more wonderful fruity flavour to this White Claw recipe.
Wedges of watermelon, strawberries and/or fresh sprigs of mint make a cute garnish. You can use one, two or even all of these to add some extra pizzazz to the White Claw mixed drink.
How to Make this Slush Cocktail
The first thing to do when making a strawberry watermelon rum White Claw slushie is to gather your ingredients together and make sure you have everything you need. Next pour the White Claw into an ice cube tray (I like silicone) and freeze.
If you’re using fresh fruit, you will also need to put that in the freezer with the White Claw. Give it about 4 hours to fully freeze.
To freeze your own fruit, chop the watermelon into chunks and arrange those chunks with the strawberries on a foil-lined platter. Don’t let the pieces touch.
Next put the frozen White Claw, frozen fruit, rum, and agave nectar to a blender and purée until smooth. Stop a few times and use a tamper or spatula to scrape down the sides of the blender to make sure everything is well mixed. Because everything is already frozen, you don’t need to add any ice to the White Claw mixed drink.
Serve right away, garnished with whichever suggested garnishes you want. If you have some strawberry popsicles, you could even pop one inside the drink! If you make this slush cocktail ahead or you have some of the mixture left over, you can always mix it and re-freeze it. You could even freeze it in popsicle molds for some adults-only popsicles!
