Recipe from Cooking Light

The classic Cuban mojito cocktail is the inspiration for this ruby-hued watermelon version. Be sure to keep the limeade frozen so the beverage will be slushy.

Ingredients

  • 5 cups cubed seeded watermelon
  • 1 cup sparkling water, chilled
  • 3/4 cup white rum
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh mint
  • 1 (6-ounce) can frozen limeade concentrate, undiluted
  • Mint sprigs (optional)
  • Lime slices (optional)

Preparation

  1. Arrange watermelon in a single layer on a baking sheet; freeze 2 hours or until completely frozen.
  2. Combine frozen watermelon, sparkling water, rum, mint, and limeade in a blender; process until smooth. Garnish with mint sprigs and lime slices, if desired. Serve immediately.
