10 cup cubed watermelon, from a 7- to 9-lb. ripe seedless melon
1 teaspoon lime zest
1/4 cup fresh lime juice, from about 3 limes
1/4 cup blanco tequila
1/4 cup light agave nectar
Lime wedges, optional


Preparation: In a blender, combine watermelon, lime zest and juice, tequila and agave and blend until smooth, adding watermelon in batches if necessary.

Pour mixture through a fine-mesh strainer into a 9-by-13-inch freezer-safe dish. Press with a spoon to extract as much juice as possible. Discard pulp.

Freeze for 2 hours. Using a fork, scrape up and incorporate ice crystals. Freeze again, scraping up ice crystals every 30 minutes with a fork, until frozen, about 2 hours more. Spoon into 6 bowls, garnish each with a lime wedge, if desired, and serve.
