6cupscubed seedless watermelon
2limesjuiced, plus 1 more lime sliced for garnish
12oz. unflavored seltzer
Add the diced watermelon and lime juice to your blender. Pulse, and then blend on high until smooth.
Place a fine strainer over a bowl, and pour the watermelon lime juice through it, using a wooden spoon to mix and scrape the bottom of the strainer occasionally and help it strain faster. Note: This step helps make the drink smooth and ensures there isn't any gritty texture, but you can definitely skip it if you'd like.
Add 6-8 mint leaves to a small pitcher and muddle it gently without over-mashing, about 3-4 times. Pour the watermelon lime juice into the pitcher and refrigerate until you're ready to serve.
Fill each glasses half with ice. Pour the watermelon-lime juice over the top of the ice until the glass is about 2/3 full. Top off each glass with seltzer and garnish with a slice of lime and a sprig of fresh mint, and a straw.
To make this drink alcoholic, add 1 oz. of vodka per glass.
