Watermelon Mojitos …for the ‘Rents


Watermelon Mojito

AJ shook up this rockin’ Mojito at the peak of summer last year.  At the time, I was 28 weeks pregnant. (By omitting the rum, this drink makes a fantastic MOCK-tail that certainly delighted this Baby Mama!)  Back by popular demand, and with rum in-tow this summer, we are ready to toast the sun, the beach, dining al fresco and our little boy Max!

Tip: Use cookie cutters to cut the watermelon into fun shapes! I had an event last weekend making “Magic Wand Fruit Kabobs” with over a 100 kids at the Northshore Mall. I saved a few stars and hearts to freeze and toss in these cocktails as “ice”. I used our Vitamix to puree the leftover Watermelon pieces so nothing went to waste…cocktail ready with enough left for tomorrow’s smoothie!

INGREDIENTS:

(serves 1)

  1. 4 oz Watermelon Puree (for a refined texture, drain the watermelon puree through a cheese clothe), plus a couple pieces for garnish

  2. 6 Mint Leaves, coarsely chopped plus a Sprig for garnish

  3. 1 tsp granulated sugar

  4. Juice of 1/2 Fresh Lemon

  5. Juice of 1/2 Fresh Lime

  6. 4 oz Ginger Ale

  7. 2 oz White Rum

PREPARATION:

  1. Pulse Watermelon Puree with Mint and Sugar for 2 seconds in Vitamix or blender.

  2. Add Lemon and Lime juice. Pour into tumbler.  Add Ginger Ale and Rum.  Gently stir.

  3. Garnish with Mint and Watermelon Chunks.  Aaahhh…Summer in a glass!
