These frozen cocktails are a great way to use up leftover watermelon. Puree and freeze the melon in ice cube trays for a refreshing treat any time.

Ingredients

fresh watermelon

8½ cup(s), seedless, cubed

diet soda

16 fl oz, lemon-lime, divided

fresh lime juice

¾ cup(s), divided

rum

2 fl oz, extract, divided

mint leaves

3 Tbsp, fresh, minced, divided

Instructions

  1. In a blender, puree watermelon (you will end up with about 6 cups of puree).
  2. Pour 2 cups of puree into each of 2 standard-size ice cube trays (16 cubes each); freeze until solid (several hours or overnight). Reserve remaining 2 cups watermelon puree in refrigerator.
  3. When ready to make mojitos, place one tray of watermelon puree cubes, 1 cup refrigerated watermelon puree, 1 cup soda, 6 tablespoons lime juice and 1 tablespoon extract in blender; blend until smooth. Stir in 1 1/2 tablespoon fresh mint and pour into 4 glasses; garnish with additional fresh mint, if desired. Repeat with remaining ingredients to make 4 more mojitos. Yields about 1 cup per serving.

Notes

You’ll need about a 7 1/2 pound watermelon for this recipe.
