Ingredients

  • 1/2 small seedless watermelon, cut into chunks
  • 1 bunch mint, tough stems removed, 6 sprigs reserved for serving
  • 1 tablespoon superfine sugar
  • 1 lime, cut into wedges
  • 1 1/4 cups white rum

 

 

Directions

  1. In a blender, in batches, puree watermelon. Pour through a fine-mesh sieve into a liquid-measuring cup, pressing on solids to extract as much liquid as possible (about 3 cups); discard solids.

  2. In a large container, combine mint, sugar, and lime. With the back of a wooden spoon, crush mint and lime until sugar is dissolved. Add watermelon juice and rum, fill container with ice, and stir to combine. Serve over more ice with mint sprigs.
