Angela Melius


For 3 servings:

12 fresh mint leaves
2 1/4 ounce fresh lime juice
2 1/4 ounce simple syrup* (Sub stevia for reduced sugars)
6 ounces light rum
9 ounces watermelon puree, strained**
Club soda, to taste
Mint sprigs and small watermelon wedges for garnish (optional)

For 1 servings, use these amounts:

4 fresh mint leaves
3/4 ounce fresh lime juice
3/4 ounce simple syrup*
2 ounces light rum
3 ounces watermelon puree, strained**

In the bottom of a Collins or other tall glass, use a muddler or the back of a wooden spoon to muddle mint leaves, lime juice and simple syrup.
Fill glass two-thirds with ice. Add rum and watermelon puree.
Top with club soda to fill glass; stir well.
Garnish with a sprig of mint or small wedge of watermelon, if desired.

*You can buy simple syrup at the store or, easily make your own.
**To make watermelon puree: Cut watermelon into 1-inch chunks; place in a blender. Blend on high speed 10-15 seconds until watermelon mixture is smooth. Strain mixture through a fine-mesh sieve into a sealable container.
You donít have to strain the watermelon puree, but it does help to avoid any sediment at the bottom of your drink.
