The weekend is almost here - whoo hoo! If you're looking to kick back with some fruity refreshment, try a watermelon mojito. It's now my second favorite summer beverage. My other favorite is a minty mojito, made using my friend Rich's recipe. I follow it exactly, including making a jar of simple syrup to keep in the fridge. That is one GOOD mojito!
The watermelon variation comes from Martha. Her recipe is quite similar, swapping out fresh muddled watermelon instead of seltzer. She uses granulated sugar, but I like to use simple syrup. Make it with or without rum. But fresh limes and mint leaves are an absolute MUST.
Cheers to summer!
