Watermelon Mojitos

Recently I shared my recipe for Watermelon Lemonade.  Oh so good.  Our kids
Watermelon Mojito | Addicted to Recipes
just love it.  "Watermelon juice" as our youngest calls it!  Well, being a grown-up, I decided I wanted to give a new twist to the lemonade, and "mojito-ize" it.  Yes, I made that word up, but it makes sense!  Here is what I did:

In our herb garden we happen to have "Margarita Mint" growing, so I picked a few of the mint leaves.  Washed, and was ready to make our beverages.

Take your glass (we made singles for our first try), take a few of the mint leaves, and crush them in your glass.  Add an ounce of white rum.  Add a few ice cubs, and top off the glass with the watermelon lemonade.  Garnish with another mint leaf.


A tasty adult summer drink.  My hubby and I enjoyed this - so refreshing on a hot evening.  I can see myself making a pitcher of this.  Oh dear.  And I don't even like rum!
