Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup (60 mL) sugar
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) each salt and coloured sugar, for rimming glasses
  • 2 limes for rims and garnish
  • 4 cups (1 L) frozen, cubed, seedless watermelon (see tip)
  • 1 cup (250 mL) tequila
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) lime juice (bottled or juice of 10 limes)
  • 1/4 cup (60 mL) orange liqueur such as Cointreau or triple sec
  • 3 cups (750 mL) Sensations by Compliments Carbonated Spring Water with Natural Lime Flavour, chilled

Method

  1. To prepare simple syrup, pour 1/4 cup (60 mL) boiling water over the 1/4 (60 mL) cup sugar. Stir until sugar dissolves. Set aside to cool completely. 
  2. Mix salt and coloured sugar (use coloured "decorating sugar" from the baking aisle); spread onto small dish. Cut lime wedge and rub onto rims of 8 shortball glasses (about 1 cup /250 mL each). Dip rims in salt/sugar mixture. Set aside.
  3. In blender, blitz frozen watermelon, tequila, lime juice, orange liqueur and simple syrup until just slushy. (Notes: To freeze watermelon ahead, line a baking sheet with plastic wrap, arrange cubes in a single layer. Freeze overnight until firm. For non-alcoholic version, substitute tequila and orange liqueur with equal quantities of carbonated water in lime or orange flavour.)
  4. Divide watermelon slush into 8 glasses. Top with carbonated spring water. Garnish each glass with lime round, if desired.
