Want a creamy version of this cocktail? Add 1 tablespoon full fat coconut milk to the ingredients before you strain over ice.
- 4 ounces watermelon puree, see note
- 2 sprigs mint
- juice of 1/2 a lime
- 1 tablespoon agave
- 2 ounces coconut rum
- ice or frozen cubes of watermelon
- mint sprigs, optional
- lime wheels, optional
- Combine all of the ingredients in a cocktail shaker with a scoop of ice. Shake vigorously enough for 20-25 seconds that the ice in the shaker breaks down the mint leaves into little flecks. Strain over ice into 2 small rocks glasses and garnish with frozen cubes of melon, mint sprigs and lime wheels. Serve immediately
To make watermelon puree: place the pink flesh of a seedless watermelon in a blender and blend on high power until completely the melon is broken down and smooth. Strain through a fine mesh strainer or cheesecloth if the puree feels gritty.
