Recipe type: Cocktail
Cuisine: Cocktail
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Serves: as many cubes as tray will hold
Combine these to consummately Southern and consummately Louisianan ingredients and be prepared to have your mind blown. This is one of the best combos we've tasted in a long time!
  • 1 watermelon from a roadside stand with character
  • ice cube tray(s)
  • 1 bottle of Fireball Whisky (unless you have A LOT of friends over, then 2)
  1. Halve and quarter watermelon.
  2. Remove rind.
  3. Chop flesh into chunks and juice that will pour into the individual spots on an ice cube tray.
  4. Pour into tray.
  5. Freeze.
  6. Place frozen cubes into any beverage that could benefit from a bit of watermelon flavor -- but especially Fireball Whisky. (We tried everything from Mississippi River Water to Fireball to beer for a makeshift watermelon shandy.
  7. For transport or to make more, dump tray of watermelon ice cubes into Ziploc bag and put in freezer or cooler to take to the campsite.
