You should make this for July 4th! So says Marmo. As a rare treat, I have transcribed the recipe directly from an email she sent me. I have changed nothing. Good luck. Aaaaaaand GO!
What You Need:
Mashed mint leaves. About 30 large ones
3-4 thick slices of fresh watermelon - put it in the food processor and puree it.
8 ounces of light rum
½ c of simple syrup ( 1 cup of sugar to 1 cup of water – boil the hell out of it until sugar is disolved)
Fresh squeezed lime juice – about 6 tablespoons.
Sprigs of mint to garnish.
What To Do:
Throw it all together, blend, drink. In that order.
