Watermelon mojito

Servings: 4


  • 3 cups seedless watermelon, cut into 1/2” (13 mm) chunks

  • 6 tbsp. lime juice, freshly squeezed
  • 2 tbsp. granulated sugar
  • 6 oz. (180 ml) light rum
  • Ice cubes
  • 4 lime slices

Place the watermelon chunks into a blender. Puree until the watermelon is smooth.

Combine the mint, lime juice and sugar in a small pitcher. Muddle the ingredients with the back of a wooden spoon until the mint releases its fragrance.
