WATERMELON MOJITOS

.

Last weekend we enjoyed some Watermelon Mojitos, thanks to the misters mixology skills. The only thing I would advise for this recipe is make sure you have enough people on hand to finish it. The 2 of us only drink so much and we had to scrap a little bit of it, which I think we would have halved the ingredients and been better off. It was really good though and super simple to make. Enjoy!

WATERMELON MOJITOS
Approx. Time 15 Minutes // Serves 6

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.
