This is a fruity variation on the Mojito that plays up the best fruits of the summer season, fresh watermelon and raspberries. The fruits are muddled along with the mint to extract their sweet juices, which intermingle nicely with the crisp, refreshing herb. The remainder of the cocktail is exactly as it is in the original: lime, mint, syrup, soda and rum (in this case the silver from Shellback, which is perfect here).
