You will need:

  • 750ml water
  • 600g caster sugar
  • 50ml lime juice
  • 600g watermelon, seeded and cubed

Heat the water and caster sugar together in a saucepan over a medium – high heat. Stir occasionally until the sugar has dissolved then leave to cool.

Blend the watermelon in a food processor until smooth (you can do this step by hand but it will take you a bit longer).

Whisk the watermelon together with lime juice and the cooled sugar syrup in a large bowl then chill in the fridge for two hours.

Pour the chilled mixture into an ice cream maker and freeze according to the directions of the appliance.

Transfer the sorbet mixture from the ice cream maker into a 1 – 2L lidded container then cover the surface with cling film and seal.

Leave overnight.

Watermelon Daiquiris (Serves 2)

The easiest cocktail you will ever make.
