30 large fresh mint leaves
4 thick slices fresh watermelon, seeds and rind removed
10 ounces light rum, such as Bacardi
1/2 cup simple syrup
1/3 cup freshly squeezed lime juice (3 limes)
Sprigs of mint and spears of watermelon, for serving
Use a mortar and pestle to mash the mint leaves you can add a little sugar to help break up the leaves and get the oils from the mint extracted.
Remove and discard the rind and seeds of the watermelon. Place the watermelon, rum, simple syrup and lime juice in a blender and blend until smooth. Stir to get the froth to go down.
Put the mashed mint into a large pitcher and add in the watermelon mixture. Stir to combine the mint with the juice.
Place ice cubes in 6 glasses and pour the mojito mixture into the glasses. Garnish with sprigs of fresh mint and spears of watermelon.

It’s hard to keep yourself from loving this pink beach shack on the Australian coast! I spotted this adorable home on Apartment Therapy and knew I had to share. Bec is the home’s owner and she combines vintage, boho and beach in a very playful and colorful manner. Take the tour!
I love this cute and colorful drink, grapefruit fizz because it’s so light and still tasty! Also I’m not much of a bartender and this cocktail recipe is super easy. I added a splash of cranberry juice to mine to give a cosmopolitan twist. Grab the recipe below or at We Are Not Martha blog.
