Watermelon Mint Mojito

Ahhh... A mojito!  Refreshing, sweet, tangy, and it gives you good breath!  This recipe makes about 4 drinks, so multiply for larger servings.

20 mint leaves, chopped
2 tablespoons superfine sugar
1/2 cup fresh lime juice
3/4 cup light rum
6 ounces seedless watermelon, pureed

In the bottom of a large shaker, muddle the mint, sugar and 1/4 cup of the lime juice. Fill the shaker with ice. Add the rum, watermelon and remaining 1/4 cup of lime juice; shake well. Strain into glasses over ice.

I served this drink with the following recipe:

Flank Steak Crostini with Chimichurri Sauce
