To Make Watermelon Sorbet:
Ingredients:

1 cup water
3 sprigs of rosemary
3 pounds seedless watermelon cut into cubes (about 10 cups)
½ cup lime juice
¼ cup and 2 tablespoons tequila
Directions:
In a small saucepan bring the sugar, water, and rosemary to a boil. Remove it from the heat and let it cool to room temperature, then strain.
Combine the rosemary syrup, watermelon, lime juice, and tequila in a blender and process until smooth. Strain through a fine-mesh sieve and refrigerate overnight.
Freeze the sorbet “granita-style” by putting it in the freezer and stirring every hour for five hours.
