The watermelon mojito recipe is perfect for summer! This fruity spin on the classic makes the most of the juicy flavor of this melon.
- Chop the watermelon. In a cocktail shaker, muddle the mint leaves. Add the watermelon cubes and muddle again until they are turned into juice.
- Add the rum, lime juice and simple syrup and fill the cocktail shaker with ice. Shake until cold.
- Add ice to a glass, and strain in the drink. Top off the glass with soda water. Garnish with additional mint leaves and watermelon wedges.
