Ingredients

6 limes
4 cups chopped seedless watermelon
3/4 cup tequila

Pour through a fine wire-mesh strainer into a large measuring cup, discarding solids. Stir in tequila, sugar, and 1 tsp. lime zest, stirring until sugar dissolves. Pour mixture into paper cups.

2. Cover each cup with aluminum foil; make a small slit in center, and insert 1 ice-cream spoon into each cup. Freeze 8 hours or until firm.
