Watermelon Mojitos – Recipe!

Print Friendly

Mojitos are a combination of fruit, rum, mint and sugar muddled together with a little ice and sparkling water. What makes mojitos fun to drink is they are light and refreshing, which really hits the spot during these warm summer months.  Watermelon is a light fruit, which blends nicely with rum and mint, so Watermelon Mojitos are the perfect seasonal cocktail.

I prepare the Watermelon Mojitos in a pitcher, which makes them easy to serve for a party.  These cocktails can be prepared ahead, just don’t add the sparkling water until party time!

Ingredients

2 cups cubed watermelon

12 mint leaves

2 teaspoons honey

8 ounces white rum

1/2 lemon

2 cups crushed ice + more for glasses

1 1/2 cups sparkling water

(Serves 4)

To Prepare:

1.  In a medium pitcher, add the cubed watermelon and mint leaves.
