  1. Blend watermelon in the blender until pureed. Strain to remove some of the pulp (optional). Measure out 2 cups of the strained watermelon juice.
  2. Place fresh mint in the bottom of a large pitcher. Add a little bit of the watermelon juice and muddle to release the flavors of the mint.
  3. Add remaining watermelon juice, fresh lime juice, 2/3 cup simple syrup, and rum. Fill the entire pitcher with ice. Top with soda.
  4. Adjust sweetness with additional simple syrup if desired. Garnish with additional lime, mint and watermelon slices.
  5. Serve immediately.

Recipe Notes

To make simple syrup combine equal parts sugar and water. Bring to a boil and stir just until sugar has dissolved. Cool completely.
