  • 10 cup watermelon cubed
  • 1 teaspoon lime zest
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice from about 4 limes
  • 1/4 cup blanco tequila
  • 1/4 cup agave nectar
  • Lime wedges optional


  • In a blender, combine watermelon, lime zest and juice, tequila and agave and blend until smooth, adding watermelon in batches if necessary.
  • 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.
  • Freeze for 2 hours (Mine took a little longer). 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.
