2 tbsp each salt and coloured sugar, for rimming glasses
limes for rims and garnish
frozen, cubed, seedless watermelon (see tip)
lime juice (bottled or juice of 10 limes)
orange liqueur such as Cointreau or triple sec
Panache Carbonated Spring Water with Natural Lime Flavour, chilled
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.
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
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.)
Divide watermelon slush into 8 glasses. Top with carbonated spring water. Garnish each glass with lime round, if desired.
