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


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