Bundaberg Ginger Beer Frozen Watermelon Moscow Mule

RECIPES | A Moscow Mule is one of our favourite cocktails to enjoy in the summer, with the ginger beer base providing a refreshing bite on a hot day. When Bundaberg Drinks asked us to develop a cocktail, putting a twist on this classic was an easy choice.

We’ve made it even more refreshing by turning the cocktail into a granita/slushie, and adding watermelon. The result is a delicious, refreshing treat.

Preparation Time: 5 minutes / Cooking time: 5 hours / Serves: 2


  • 1 bottle (375ml) Bundaberg Ginger Beer
  • ¼ seedless watermelon, juiced
  • ½ lime, juiced
  • 6 mint leaves
  • 60 ml vodka (can be omitted for a non-alcoholic version)


  1. Mix together the ginger beer, watermelon, and lime juice.
  2. Place the mixture in a shallow tray and put into the freezer for an hour. After an hour, use a fork to break apart the crystals, and repeat every hour for 4 hours.
  3. You should now have a granita texture. Pour into a glass and garnish with mint leaves, and a sliver of lime and watermelon.


If you can’t juice/blend the watermelon, dice it into as small pieces as possible.

If you have an ice-cream maker, you can save time and effort by putting all the ingredients into it instead of the fridge.
