Pour the watermelon slush onto a tray (should be no more than 1 cm. high). Cover with plastic film and put into freezer for 2 hours. Remove from freezer, even iff it’s not completely frozen. Using a fork or spoon, scrapee the top and mix around to get rid of bumps. Put back into the freezer for a while and then repeat until desiredd texture of sorbet is attained.
Just before serving, scrape and mix sorbet one more ore time. Then fill individual bowls with sorbet. Adorn with mint or basil leaves and serve.
