Ingredients: 

 

3 cups watermelon juice (about 1/3 of a large watermelon)
½ cup sugar
Pinch of salt
1 tbsp freshly squeezed lime juice
1 shot Bacardi Carta Blanca rum 
Schweppes Mojito Mix, Mint & Lime Flavoured Drink (250ml) 
Lime slices to garnish 
Mint leaves to garnish

 

Method: 

 

1. Scoop or cut the watermelon from the rind and puree the flesh in a food processor or blender.

 

2. Strain the puree into a large bowl to eliminate seeds and pulp.

 

3. In a small saucepan on a medium heat, combine ½ of the watermelon juice with the sugar and salt, cook stirring until sugar is completely dissolved, about 2 minutes.

 

4. Remove from the heat, let it cool a bit, and then combine with the remaining watermelon juice and lime juice.

 

5. Pour the mixture into a dish, cover and freeze overnight. 

 

6. Once frozen, scratch with a fork and place back into the freezer. 

 

7. Fill a chilled glass ¾ full with granita and top with a shot of rum and Schweppes Mojito Mix. 

 

8. Garnish with a slice of lime and fresh mint leaves. 

 

9. Serve & ENJOY!
