You’ll be tickled pink to find out that this tropical drink gets its blushing colour thanks to real fruit – watermelon! Perfectly ripe in the summer, or available year-round in the frozen section of the grocery store. Without the rum, it’s delicious as a zero-proof mocktail.
1 cup hot water
3 cups frozen cubed watermelon
1 cup frozen pineapple
2 oz light rum
Toppings (optional): Pineapple or watermelon slices
- In a bowl, whisk together mix and hot water. Stir until mix is dissolved.
- Add to a blender with watermelon, pineapple, and rum. Blend until smooth. If needed, add a little water, 1 tbsp at a time, until desired thickness is reached.
- Pour into chilled glasses. Garnish, if desired, and serve.
