Hence the name.) till pulpy and the sugar is incorporated. Add ice and a shot of rum. Top with lemonade and water (sparkling if you so desire) in equal parts.

Top up with equal parts lemonade and watermelon juice. (Add other alcoholic additives if desired, this is a yummy, dangerously yummy drink!). Garnish with the slice of kiwi.
