Ingredients

  • 10 cup cubed watermelon, from a 7- to 9-lb. ripe seedless melon
  • 1 teaspoon lime zest
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice, from about 4 limes
  • 1/4 cup blanco tequila
  • 1/4 cup light agave nectar
  • Lime wedges, optional

Preparation

  1. 1. In a blender, combine watermelon, lime zest and juice, tequila and agave and blend until smooth, adding watermelon in batches if necessary.
  2. 2. Pour mixture through a fine-mesh strainer into a 9-by-13-inch freezer-safe dish. Press with a spoon to extract as much juice as possible. Discard pulp.
  3. 3. Freeze for 2 hours. Using a fork, scrape up and incorporate ice crystals. Freeze again, scraping up ice crystals every 30 minutes with a fork, until frozen, about 2 hours more. Spoon into 6 bowls, garnish each with a lime wedge, if desired, and serve.
