  • Pour in rum and give it a couple of stirs to incorporate. Pour mixture into a 9x12-inch pan and place in the freezer for 4 hours. Scrape the mixture with a fork every 1 to 2 hours. It will not freeze completely due to the rum.

  • Serve in a shallow bowl or a nice glass.

Cook's Notes:

If you use a watermelon with seeds, you can strain to get the seeds out after blending.

Simple syrup can be substituted for the sugar.
