Ingredients

  • 1 bunch fresh mint, leaves picked
  • 3 limes, finely grated zest and juice of
  • 2 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • white rum, to taste
  • ¼ large watermelon, peeled and cut into chunks
  • 2 ripe mangoes, stoned and flesh scooped out with a spoon
  • 1 ripe pineapple, peeled, cored and cut into chunks
 

Method

In a very clean pestle and mortar, bash most of the mint leaves with the finely grated lime zest. Add the sugar, a good lug of rum and the lime juice, then mix again gently. Have a taste and add a touch more sugar if you think you need to, but bear in mind the fruit may be quite sweet.

Toss the fruit together in a bowl with a little of the mojito mixture, then spread it all out on a big plate. Spoon the rest of the mixture over the top, decorate with a few torn-up mint leaves and serve.
