  1. Put all the ingredients in a blender and blitz until smooth – it will be very thick and slushy but will gradually thin as the watermelon defrosts. Pour into a 1ltr bottle and chill for up to 1 day before serving.
  2. When ready to serve, thoroughly shake the bottle to mix then pour into glasses.

Tip: You can also make the margarita with 500g of fresh, deseeded watermelon flesh, but the cocktail will be frothy rather than slushy.
