Nothing beats a slice of watermelon on a hot summer day. The Watermelon Mojito pairs the goodness of watermelon with the refreshing taste of mint.

Preparation Time:10 minutes
Cooking Time: 0 minutes
Makes: 4 servings

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

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
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.
