Sweet, pink and full of watermelon.
So, I had this culinary dilemma last weekend. There was half a watermelon sitting in the fridge and it was going to go bad soon. So I cranked up the culinary gears in my head and tried to figure out a way to use it....FAST!
The watermelon mojito, with a simple twist, was the perfect solution. A wonderfully sweet fruity cocktail for a warm summer dinner. Cheers!
- watermelon, cubed
- Mojito mix
- light rum (I used Malibu Rum)*
In a blender puree the watermelon until smooth, pour into a small bowl and set aside. Make mojito as directed on mix. Add pureed watermelon to the desired level of taste. Pour into some cocktail glasses over ice. Garnish with a lime slice.
*if you would like a non-alcoholic version you can use club soda
