This cocktail will keep you cool and refreshed all summer long. Serve it at a party to wow your guests, and skip the rum if you want to make it a sweet and fruity mocktail. Either way, make sure you add plenty of ice!
Before you start
Powerful food processor | Sieve | Jug | Straws
- 1 very large watermelon (at least 50cm diameter)
- 300ml white rum
- Juice of 5 limes
- 200ml orange juice
- 3 tbsp sugar
- 1 bag of ice
- Handful of fresh strawberries or blueberries
Prepare the watermelon | Choose which side will be the bottom of the watermelon; if it doesn’t stand up straight, use a knife to slice a very small sliver off the base | Once it’s standing upright, cut horizontally across the middle | Take off the top and keep it for another recipe.
Scoop out all the watermelon flesh and seeds from the bottom half until the inside looks neat | Transfer the flesh to the food processor (or use a stick blender and a bowl), then pour into a large bowl through a sieve to remove any seeds | Pour into a jug.
Make the drink | Pour the watermelon juice, rum, lime juice, orange juice, sugar and white rum into the food processor | Blend again to mix the liquid together before adding the ice cubes - blend again until you have a slushy-like consistency | Add more orange juice if needed
Serve the drink | Pour the mixture into the hollowed out watermelon and add fresh berries | Put straws into the mixture and enjoy
