First of all, be sure to start with a seedless watermelon! Since we’re going to blend the watermelon, seeds will get in the way. Even the little white seeds that you find inside a seedless watermelon should be removed if possible.
Also, this drink is heavenly when watermelons are in season. Be sure to pick a good one that is ripe and juicy. If you don’t know how to pick the best watermelon, you must check out this blog.
The field spot that they show makes a big difference in the quality of your watermelon. You must try picking a watermelon this way!
Watermelons are so sweet that you probably won’t want to add any simple syrup. So we marked that as optional.
As far as the rum, a white rum is essential! I used some cheap rum here, but you will do yourself a big favor by using a high end rum. My go to is Bayou Rum because it’s local. You will want to use about 2 shots of rum per cocktail but feel free to booze this cocktail up or down depending on your preferences!
And as far as the Topo Chico – any seltzer will do! Topo Chico is a great one but anything that gives this cocktail a bit of fizz makes it super fun.
I like overdoing this Whirled Watermelon Cocktail with lots of fresh mint. Mint is adorable and totally delicious. It also looks super cute in these little mason jars!Print
