Watermelon Mojito

Watermelon Mojito

Summer is hard work for a parent y’all (please tell me I’m not the only one). We’re week 1 (O-N-E) into our summer vacation and I’m already hearing “I’M BORED” “WHAT CAN WE DO?” “I’M HUNGRY” sideeye. Here’s hoping I make it through the summer. What is helping? These Watermelon Mojitos for one thing. Fun to say, fun to drink. Now you can make them with or without the rum depending on whom you’re serving them to. Mine will have da rum. Options, you know we love them around here.

Watermelon Mojito
I’m kinda obsessed with all things watermelon. ‘Tis the season and all. There’s just something innately summer about watermelon to me. They’re sweet, sticky and are pretty much made up of mostly water so I can eat the whole dang thing and not feel bad about it (thank goodness for the small things). They’re also incredibly reasonably priced. We have sliced or cubed watermelon for snack a few times a week, the rest I puree and turn into mojitos. Oh happy days.

You put the lime in the watermelon (okay that doesn’t really have the same ring as coconut but whatever) The sweet watermelon (and no worries if your watermelon isn’t super sweet you can fix that to your taste by adjusting the simple syrup, which by the way I recommend keeping on hand in your fridge all summer. It’s perfect to sweeten teas, lemonades and oh yeah mojitos duh) pairs with the fresh mint and lime juice like they’ve been besties forever. They probably even have matching heart piece necklaces. Is that even still a thing? Sigh.

Ready to make a pitcher, sit out on your deck and sip the night away? Don’t forget to text your friend to help out ehem that would be me and I have loads of fresh mint on the ready. I might even bring snacks. Because I’m awesome like that ; )

    Fresh watermelon cocktails are my jam. I have one coming up that just totally changed my view of what a watermelon drink could (and should) taste like. These mojitos look so refreshing and, well, dangerous.
