Sit and sip, and imagine you are on a tropical island. One can always dream.... Can't one?
- 2 ounces rum
- 2 ounces club soda (or Perrier)
- 1 teaspoon brown sugar
- cubed watermelon
- 1⁄2 lime juice
- mint leaf
- Muddle the mint leaves and lime juice in a glass, add brown sugar, then ice. Add the watermelon cubes, then pour rum and soda over watermelon and serve with a garnish of mint or lime.
I actually froze the watermelon cubes and then zapped everything together in a blender so that it was kind of like an alcoholic watermelon slushie. I understood the '1/2 lime juice' to mean the juice of half a lime, which was perfect. I must have added a good 1 1/2 cups of frozen watermelon cubes and got enough beverage to make a long drink. VERY alcoholic and really yummy. Can't wait to have another soon.
Sexy and delicious. I love the subtlety of the ingredients.
