1/4 cup
¼ cup
2 tbsp each salt and coloured sugar, for rimming glasses
60 mL
limes for rims and garnish
4 cups
frozen, cubed, seedless watermelon (see tip)
1 L
1 cup
250 mL
1/2 cup
lime juice (bottled or juice of 10 limes)
125 mL
1/4 cup
orange liqueur such as Cointreau or triple sec
60 mL
3 cups
Panache Carbonated Spring Water
with Natural Lime Flavour, chilled
750 mL


Step 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.

Step 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

Step 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.)

Step 4

Divide watermelon slush into 8 glasses. Top with carbonated spring water. Garnish each glass with lime round, if desired.


Transfer frozen watermelon cubes into freezer bags to store.
