I felt like treating myself to a nice refreshing drink this evening. When you come to think of it, there is no better drink than a mojito to shake off the heat. But, I decided to give my mojito a bright summery twist by adding my favorite summer fruit to it…watermelon!!
Here is the recipe for making a delicious watermelon mojito.
4 ounces light rum
10-1inch watermelon cubes
8 fresh mint leaves
1 tsp granulated or powdered sugar
3 tbs fresh lime juice
1) Blend the watermelon pieces in a food processor until smooth.
2) Take the mint leaves in a pestle and crush them. Mix in the sugar and lime juice. Muddle these ingredients together until the sugar dissolves.
3) Pour the mix in a cocktail shaker and add in the blended watermelon juice along with some ice cubes. Shake well and pour into a glass through the cocktail strainer.
4) Garnish with mint sprigs and enjoy!
