Haven't tried the 2nd one, but the alcoholic slushie was great! (might even need more vodka)
Watermelon Vodka Slushie - 5/18/13
1½ cups watermelon chunks
½ cup ice
1.5 - 2 oz vodka*
1 ounce lemon juice
1 ounce simple syrup
Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until very smooth and frothy.
Pour into a large, heavy glass and serve immediately.
- better with 2 oz vodka, since it makes 2 drinks
- I forgot the salt. Don't know if it makes a difference.
Watermelon Coolers - (Cooking Light recipe)
8 cups (1/2-inch) watermelon cubes, frozen
1.5 cups ginger ale
1/3 cup water
6-oz can frozen limeade concentrate
Place watermelon cubes in a single layer in an extra-large zip-top plastic freezer bag, and freeze 8 hours.
Let stand at room temperature 15 minutes.
Process half each of watermelon, ginger ale, water, and limeade concentrate in a blender until smooth;
Pour mixture into a pitcher.
Repeat procedure with remaining half of ingredients; stir into pitcher, and serve immediately.
Substitute 8 cups (1/2-inch) honeydew melon cubes for watermelon cubes and 1 (6-oz.) can frozen lemonade concentrate for limeade concentrate; proceed as directed.

Let me know if you try either one. And post your summer drinks. I'm really thirsty!
Those sound so yummy. I'm tempted to buy a watermelon and make puree that I can freeze and use year-round.
That's a good idea Graciepj!!!
I love watermelon - could eat the whole dang thing in one sitting if it's really cold.
Gonna try the first one a/c I have a whole watermelon for just two of us.
I'll let you know results!
Sounds so good--got to try both recipes!
