Total Time:  10 Min.
Calories Per Drink:  138

1/2 small seedless watermelon, cut into chunks
1 bunch mint, tough stems removed, 6 sprigs reserved for serving
1 tablespoon superfine sugar
1 lime, cut into wedges
1 1/4 cups white rum

In a blender, in batches, puree watermelon.  Pour through a fine-mesh sieve into a liquid-measuring cup, pressing on solids to extract as much liquid as possible (about 3 cups); discard solids.

In a large container, combine mint, sugar and lime.  With the back of a wooden spoon, crush mint and lime until sugar is dissolved.  Add watermelon juice and rum, fill container with ice, and stir to combine.  Serve over more ice and mint sprigs.
