memorial day drinks
3/4 cup watermelon chunks, seedless
1 shot (1.5 oz.) Bicardi rum
1 lime, cut into wedges
3 – 4 mint leaves
2 no-calorie sweetener packets
1 cup crushed ice or 5 – 7 ice cubes
Place the mint leaves, half the lime wedges, and the sweetener in a tall glass. Squeeze the juice from the remaining lime wedges into the glass and discard those wedges. Crush and “muddle” the mixture until the juice has been released from the lime wedges, the mint leaves are thoroughly bruised, and the sweetener has dissolved. Set aside.
Place the watermelon, rum, and ice in a blender, and blend until smooth. Pour into the glass with the lime-mint mixture and stir well.
