Watermelon Mojito


The watermelon mojito recipe is perfect for summer! This fruity spin on the classic makes the most of the juicy flavor of this melon.


  • 6 mint leaves, plus additional for garnish
  • 1/2 cup chopped watermelon, plus more for garnish
  • 2 ounces* white rum
  • 1 ounce lime juice
  • 1 ounce simple syrup or maple syrup
  • 2 ounces soda water

  1. Chop the watermelon. In a cocktail shaker, muddle the mint leaves. Add the watermelon cubes and muddle again until they are turned into juice.
  2. Add the rum, lime juice and simple syrup and fill the cocktail shaker with ice. Shake until cold.
  3. 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.
