Watermelon Mojito!!

20120714-215843.jpgI 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.

Ingredients

4 ounces light rum

10-1inch watermelon cubes

8 fresh mint leaves

1 tsp granulated or powdered sugar

3 tbs fresh lime juice

Method

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!
