It's easy, it's simple, and your guests will love it! (and so will you!)
1 cup watermelon, seeded roughly chopped - 47 calories
½ lime, juiced - 5 calories
4 mint leaves - 0 calories
ice - 0 calories
1 fl. oz. Bacardi Rum (we recommend the lower calorie ones: Anejo, Gold, Superior and Vanilla. Razz is somewhat higher, with 72 calories per fluid ounce.) - 66 - 76 calories

In a blender, process watermelon until liquefied. Pour into a glass.
In a small bowl, muddle together the lime juice and mint leaves. Pour over the top of the watermelon. Fill the glass with ice and top with rum and club soda.
Garnish with mint leaves and watermelon wedge if desired.
Note: If the water melon is not to sweet, add ½ tsp. of organic cane sugar.
