What is a Mojito? Mojitos are a traditional Cuban cocktail consisting of rum, sugar, fresh mint, club soda and citrus. Tall and tasty.
This is obviously a twist on the classic Mojito cocktail. Watermelon Mojitos are fun to say, even more fun to drink and are perfect to make in the summer when watermelons are sweet and plentiful. You can make these watermelon mojitos with or without the rum depending on whom you’re serving them to.
