Watermelon Mojito…

9 Jul

My friend Jen was asking me for some fun drink recipes as she is hosting party this month… I was looking through some old recipes and this was one I found that I remember being pretty fond of…  I am not sure where I got the original recipe, sorry!

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups 1/2-inch Cubes Watermelon ( I just balled them)
  • 12  Mint Leaves
  • 2 Tablespoons Sugar
  • 6 Tablespoons  Lime Juice
  • 6 ounces, Light Rum

To Make:

Place watermelon cubes in a blender. Blend until smooth.

In a small pitcher, combine fresh mint leaves, sugar, and fresh lime juice. Using the handle of a wooden spoon, muddle the ingredients together, but not until the leaves fall apart. Pour rum and the watermelon puree into the pitcher and stir gently.  YUMMY…  I am going to have to make these “rum free” so I too can enjoy a fun summer beverage!

OH and I also heard a recipe on the radio where you blend watermelon cubes with lemonade for a fresh spin on lemonade…  I have not tried this, but I think it sounds awesome!
