After last summer’s frosé frenzy, 
we’re all craving the next big 
chill. At Treasury 
in San Francisco, there’s always something icy churning at the bar. “Slushies signal 
a good time,” says beverage director Carlos Yturria, the brains behind this watermelon-based party starter,

Pour the watermelon juice into an 
ice cube tray and freeze until solid, about 
4 hours.

Step 2    

In a blender, pulse the watermelon ice cubes with chilled vodka, chilled Aperol, chilled fino sherry, fresh lemon juice, agave and crushed ice until smooth. Add more agave if desired.

Step 3    

Divide among 4 chilled glasses and garnish with thin watermelon wedges 
and black and white sesame seeds. Serve immediately.

Make Ahead

The watermelon ice cubes can be frozen for up to 1 month.
