This Mess Is Ours
– watermelon puree – sprigs mint – juice of ½ a lime – agave – coconut rum to serve – ice or frozen cubes of watermelon – mint sprigs, optional – lime wheels, optional
Combine all of the ingredients in a cocktail shaker with 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 and garnish with frozen cubes of melon, mint sprigs and lime wheels.
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.
