A Watermelon Daiquiri
3 ounces (or more) white rum
juice of good-sized lime
1 tablespoon simple syrup
10 cubes (about 1 inch) frozen watermelon
Whizz in blender and pour into marguerita glasses. Serves two, in theory, but I find that sort of thing depends on the heat of the day or the type of visitor one is expecting. Recipe from Nigella Lawson's Nigella Bites.
