Watermelon Frojito

I got this recipe from Hungry Girl. It's a good one:)

Place mint leaves, Splenda, and lime wedges in a glass. Muddle the mixture.

1 shot of rum.

3/4 cup watermelon

Add 1 cup crushed ice with the watermelon and rum to a blender.

Recipe:

3/4 cup watermelon chunks, seedless or seeds removed
1 shot rum
1 lime, cut into wedges
3-4 mint leaves
2 no-calorie sweetener packets (like Splenda or Truvia)
1 cup crushed ice or 5-7 ice cubes

Place the mint leaves, half the lime wedges, and the sweetener in a tall glass. Squeeze the juice from the remaining lime wedges into the glass and discard those wedges. Crush and "muddle" the mixture until the juice has been released from the lime wedges, the mint leaves are thoroughly bruised, and the sweetener has dissolved. Set aside.

Place the watermelon, rum, and ice in a blender, and blend until smooth. Pour into the glass with the lime-mint mixture and stir well.

Drink up and be refreshed:)
