Watermelon 'nojitos'


  • 1/2 cup caster sugar
  • 1.5kg watermelon, peeled, chopped
  • 2 limes, sliced
  • 2 cups chilled soda water
  • 1/3 cup lime juice
  • 1 small bunch fresh mint, sprigs picked
  • 1 tablespoon caster sugar, extra (for rim)
  • 2 teaspoons finely grated lime rind
  • Ice-cubes, to serve


  1. Place sugar and 1 cup water in a small saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring, for 5 minutes or until sugar dissolves. Increase heat to high. Bring to the boil. Boil, without stirring, for 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Set aside to cool completely.
  2. Place watermelon in a blender. Blend until smooth.
  3. Place lime slices in a large jug. Using the end of a rolling pin, slightly crush lime to release juice. Add watermelon, soda water, lime juice, and cooled sugar syrup. Stir to combine. Add mint.
  4. Combine extra sugar and lime rind on a small plate. Place 1⁄4 cup water in a separate bowl. Dip the rim of serving glasses into water, then in sugar mixture. Divide ice among glasses. Add watermelon mixture. Serve immediately.
