These refreshing watermelon mojitos are the perfect summer cocktail! Made with fresh watermelon juice, rum, mint, cane sugar and lime.
Fresh watermelon juice is the perfect ingredient for your summer cocktails. Also, it’s so easy to make! All you need to do is blend some watermelon then strain it. Then you have a delicious cocktail mixer. I love watermelon juice in margaritas. However, I thought I’d change it up with these watermelon mojitos. I’ve been craving mojitos ever since we went to Florida. We drank so many there. The perfect pool or beach cocktail to sip on.
I love how this recipe only calls for a handful of ingredients. The combination of the sweet watermelon and mint is great for the summer heat here in Texas. I know we’ll be making these regularly this summer.
