Iced Watermelon and Rosemary Coolers


Iced Watermelon and Rosemary Coolers


  1. 1.5kg Fashion watermelon flesh, cubed
    40g caster sugar
    4 sprigs rosemary, plus extra to garnish (optional)


  1. Arrange the watermelon in a single layer on trays. Transfer to the freezer for 24 hours, or until completely frozen.
  2. Put the sugar, rosemary and 100ml water in a pan set over a medium heat. Stir occasionally to dissolve the sugar, then remove from the heat and leave to infuse for 30 minutes. Discard the rosemary and chill in the fridge.
  3. Tip a quarter of the frozen watermelon into a blender with 1 tbsp rosemary syrup. Blitz until the mixture has a frosty, slushy consistency. Add a splash of ice-cold water to loosen the mixture, if necessary.

  4. Pour into a chilled glass and garnish with a sprig of rosemary, if you like. Repeat the same process for the remaining coolers.
