Watermelon Mojitos

We were welcomed Day One of our vacay by our dear friend Betsy in Wilmington with refreshing, tasty watermelon mojitos - our signature drink for the evening.  Just the thing to beat the heat we've been having around here lately.  Try it for yourself!  We used Martha's recipe

Watermelon Mojitos
4 large mint leaves
1/2 lime
1 tablespoon superfine sugar
4 ounces seedless watermelon, cut into 1/2-inch cubes (about 3/4 cup), plus a small wedge for garnish
2 ounces white rum
1/2 cup ice cubes

In a heavy large glass, combine mint, lime, and sugar. Using a muddler, mash together mint and lime until sugar is dissolved. Add watermelon, and muddle until broken down. Stir in rum and ice cubes. Pour into an 8-ounce serving glass and garnish with a watermelon wedge. Serve immediately.
