Savor the dog days of summer with this fruity cooler.
In a shaker, muddle the mint, lime juice, agave nectar and watermelon.
Add the rum and fill with ice.
Shake, and strain into a rocks glass filled with fresh ice.
Garnish with a lemon twist.

In my very own opinion, bacardi white and bacardi black, are some damn aweful rums! Plus, it's too expenssive.
I prefer (for the "lets get drunk"-evenings) Havana Club rums.
Here in Denmark, the Bacardi bottles are about $21 and the Havana Clubs are about $17.
But taste is always personal, going to try the watermelon mojito soon! :)
There was a cocktail at the KC Bartending Competition last weekend like this... The finalist was from a wine bar in Manhattan, KS; here's the recipe from the Competition's website.
4 Large melon balls Watermelon (totalling 2 oz)
3 Mint Leaves
2 oz Milagro Blanco Tequila
.25 Madhava Amber Agave Nectar
splash lime juice (less than .25)
pinch of fleur del sel
splash St. George Absinthe (less than .25)
Served in a Martini Glass
Garnished with Cucumber skin laced watermelon ball on a bamboo cocktail pick.
Seriously yummy stuff.
Bacardi is flavorless . . . try Oronoco . .. made from sugar cane of Brazil . . . has a nice light citrusy vanilla note to it that goes so well with lime and mint . . . Highly recommend
