Watermelon Daiquiris

Craving something clean, cool, refreshing and really healthy this Summer? Well, these may not be so healthy given their rum content, but they can sure quench your thirst and leave you in the mood for lots of dancing (and bad singing in our case). They’re a perfect way to get any party started.

To make you will need:
(Makes about 6)
Half a watermelon
White rum
4 limes, juiced
Sugar (approx. 3 tbsp)
Fresh mint to decorate


So, first you need to pre-freeze your watermelon for 24 hours. Cut it up though for goodness sake and pop it in a bag, or you’ll give up on the chainsaw and just drink the rum. Not good for anyone. 

Once your watermelon chunks are nice and frozen, pile in a blender and add in liberal amounts of rum (about 1 part to 3 parts fruit) and squeeze in the fresh lime juice. Sprinkle in the sugar, and a dash of Cointreau. 

Blitz up until it’s a smooth, icy, velvet. Taste and serve in some cocktail glasses with a sprig of fresh mint. Hello hangover. Warning: these will get you pissed so eat something first!!

I'm always on the look out for new cocktails so please feel free to leave me a comment and share!
