A fresh watermelon mojito is light, fruity and tantalizingly refreshing on a hot summer day. It’s so easy to whip up that it’s almost dangerous. But what can I say, I’m a risktaker :).
I was so excited about preparing these drinks over the weekend that I forgot to take any of the prep photos. Not to worry, I’m sure you will figure it out. You can make one drink in less than 5 minutes and be by the pool relaxing in no time. The fresh mint makes this drink sing!
I don’t know about you guys but the temps here have been unbearable! Oh, and the humidity…ridiculous!
Use a blender (or food processor) to process the watermelon until liquefied. We used my new Target clearance find. I found a smoothie blender for $11!
It came with those cute plastic mason jars. Yes, clearance finds THRILL me. Don’t you love a good clearance sale?
Muddle the mint leaves and freshly squeezed lime juice, pour over the watermelon puree, add ice, white rum, and club soda. Stir to combine.
If you like a thinner consistency push the puree through a fine mesh sieve.
Serve in a highball glass, or embrace the south and use a mason jar. Garnish with a watermelon wedge. To be kind, you can use a seedless watermelon.
Sit back, relax and enjoy! Who doesn’t love watermelon?
