6 cups seedless watermelon chunks

1/4 cup simple syrup, see Cook's Notes

2 limes, cut into chunks

1 1/2 cups fresh blueberries

1/2 cup lightly packed fresh mint leaves, plus sprigs for garnish

1 cup plata (silver) tequila

Crushed ice


  1. Puree the watermelon in a food processor until smooth. Strain the juice into a bowl pressing on the pulp, then discard the solids.
  2. Put the simple syrup, lime chunks, berries and mint in a pitcher and muddle until the berries are slightly crushed. Add the tequila and watermelon juice and stir to combine. Refrigerate until cold, at least 1 hour. Serve over crushed ice, garnished with mint sprigs. 

Cook’s Note

Put a 1/2 cup of water in a small saucepan and bring to a boil over high heat. Whisk in the sugar and cook until the sugar is completely dissolved. Let cool.
