All your friends will be super impressed by this Insta-worthy drank that takes less than 5 minutes to make. It goes well with most liquor, even if you don’t have rum on hand, and really drinking anything out of a watermelon makes it that much better.

  • Step 1

    Cut the watermelon in half, leaving the top and bottom intact so you can pour the drink back into it later.

  • Step 2

    Scoop out the watermelon pulp of one half, and put it in a blender.

  • Step 3

    Add the rest of the ingredients to the blender, and blend for 30-60 seconds or until smooth.

    #SpoonTip: Use any leftover mint leaves to make fresh mint tea by pouring hot water over them in a mug. 

  • Step 4

    Pour your drink back into the hollowed out watermelon, put some mint leaves on it, and pretend you’re on a beach.
