The best way to do it is from the mongodb console:

> use mydb; 
> db.dropDatabase();

Alternatively, you can stop mongod and delete the data files from your data directory, then restart.

Hint: you can also move the data files to a subfolder, and delete them if you're sure you no longer need them.

Like this:

mongo <dbname> --eval "db.dropDatabase()"
