Watermelon Mojito

Watermelon Mojito

 

A watermelon mojito is light, fruity and tantalizingly refreshing on a hot summer day.  So easy to whip up that it’s almost dangerous.  Almost.  I was so excited about preparing these drinks over the weekend that I forgot to take any of the prep photos.  Not to worry, I’m sure you will figure it out. You can make one drink in less than 5 minutes and be by the pool relaxing in no time. I don’t know about you guys but the temps here have been unbearable! Oh, and the humidity…ridiculous!

Watermelon Mojito - A light, refreshing cocktail to beat the summer heat!

Use a blender to process the watermelon until liquefied. We used my new Target clearance find.  I found a smoothie blender for $11! It came with those cute plastic mason jars. Yes, clearance finds THRILL me. Don’t you love a good clearance sale?
