A watermelon slush is a perfect refreshing drink that can be enjoyed for pleasure or as part of a detox regime!

Ah, Sonic. That mecca of drinks and sundaes. Where burgers and rollerskates mix and tater tots get the business with chili and cheese. Growing up, Sonic was always a popular spot to pull in and have a drink after school. Unfortunately, Sonic hasn't made it's way across the pond and there are no drive-in fast food restaurants either.

 Inspired by the drinks of my childhood, a hint of nostalgia and with fresh watermelon to use up, I pulled out the blender and made this refreshing cooler. It's clearly not alcoholic (although that could easily be rectified) but my husband and I sipped this on the couch after Callum had gone to bed while watching TV.

Make it your own by leaving out the sugar and add in a bit of salt or mint. You could even add some strawberries or fresh lemon or lime. Enjoy this slush as a cool treat or 86 the ice and down it as an infused water. Gulp it down post workout or sip it as part of a detox regime.
