Last weekend Bri & I tried our hands at making cocktails with fresh watermelon, and the results were fantastic! The drink was summery and fairly healthy (well in the land of cocktails at least!) due to ingredients being minimal mostly comprised of fresh watermelon. We decided to puree a diced up watermelon as our base and then started mixing. This drink also works really well sans the rum and makes the perfect summer "mocktail".
A whole watermelon
Fresca (or any light soda)
Rum (we used Malibu to give it a fun flavor but regular clear rum works too)
Dice up your watermelon (leaving some for garnish!)
Puree your diced watermelon and set aside
Pour in your rum first, followed by the puree
Top your drink with the soda
Garnish with extra watermelon
*Muddling some mint into the drink also taste really good we added the mint in for flavor and removed most of the leaves to ensure our drink looked nice and pretty!
