THE RECIPE

Watermelon Mojito

Save summer with this cocktail

As the summer winds down, we’re looking for any way possible to hold onto the warmth and this drink is pure sunshine in a glass. We’re big fans of adding fresh fruit to cocktails because it can turn something like a basic mojito into a seasonally special drink. (blackberry or cranberry, anyone?). At this time of year, we’re trying to snatch up as many huge, sweet watermelons as we can but there always seems to be plenty leftover in the fridge. Instead of just eating the watermelon as-is (which is always delicious), you can easily turn it into a fresh watermelon juice with no special equipment other than a blender required. Barb uses that as a base for this refreshing and lightly fruity mojito that’s sure to be a crowd pleaser at your end-of-summer BBQs.
