  • Servings 4 portions
  • 600 g ripe seedless watermelon, rind removed, cut into pieces (3 cm)
  • 70 g raw sugar
  • 4 cm orange zest strip, no white pith
  • 120 g tequila, plus extra 1 tbsp, to dip
  • 3 limes ; 1 peeled, no white pith, pips removed and 2 thinly sliced, to serve


    1. The night before you want to serve these, place a shallow freezable container onto mixing bowl lid and weigh watermelon into it. Cover and place in the freezer for 6 hours or overnight, until completely frozen.
    2. When you’re ready to serve, place sugar and orange zest into mixing bowl, then mill 10 sec/speed 9.
    3. Place 1–2 tablespoons of the orange sugar on a plate. Pour the extra 1 tablespoon of tequila into a small, shallow bowl. Dip the rims of four cocktail glasses into the tequila, then dip rims in orange sugar to coat. Set glasses aside.
    4. Add remaining 120 g tequila, flesh of a lime and the frozen watermelon pieces to the remaining orange sugar in mixing bowl, then blend 1 min/speed 8, with aid of spatula. Pour mixture into prepared glasses. Thread slices of lime onto cocktail skewers, then rest a skewer carefully on the rim of each glass. Serve immediately.
