Why it’s amazing. Because I made it
What booze used and its harmony with the other ingredients.
White Rum provides the drink with the fortification the drink needs as well as adding a touch of sweetness, adding lemon juice to the drink provides it with a tang which will help enhance the fruit. Adding Watermelon gives the drink a fruity burst and mint gives it a herbaceous, refreshing finish.

10mls Simple Syrup
4x Chunk Watermelon
8x Mint Leaf
(Watermelon Slice and Mint Sprig for Garnish)
Add all ingredients to a cocktail tin, using a blunt object muddle the Watermelon chunks and mint leaves to release the juice of the watermelon and essence of the mint.
