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!
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?
Muddle the lime juice and mint, pour over the watermelon puree, add ice, vodka and club soda. Sit back, relax and enjoy! This recipe is intended for adults 21+ only who know how to drink responsibly.
- 1/2 cup watermelon, seeded chopped
- ½ lime, juiced

In a blender, process watermelon until liquefied.
In the glass you are using, muddle together the lime juice and mint leaves. Pour in watermelon. Fill the glass with ice, top with rum and club soda.
Garnish with mint leaves and watermelon wedge if desired.
If the watermelon is not very sweet you can add some simple syrup or agave nectar.
