Frozen Watermelon Mojitos

Because we all deserve a drink this year (or omit the rum and make a cool smoothie).

Recipe adapted from: smittenkitchen.com 

ingredients

1 lb. (4 cups) watermelon or other melon, cut into 1" cubes

1/2 cup lime juice 

1 to 2 tablespoons sugar

3 to 4 ounces white rum (optional)

1 or 2 fresh sprigs of mint

instructions

Spread your watermelon cubes on a sheet tray and freeze until frozen. Other varieties of melons will freeze harder, so you won't need to freeze them as long. Add the sugar to the lime juice and stir until the sugar dissolves. Place the frozen watermelon, sweetened lime juice, rum if using, and blend until thick but smooth. Add the mint and pulse until chopped but not too finely. Pour into two glasses and add a splash of seltzer if desired.
