Watermelon Mojitos

Watermelon Mojitos
  • On April 11, 2012


After such a beautiful holiday weekend, I was really reminded of the warm Spring weather that is to come.

Here is a tasty cocktail for your next warm day:
(Recipe: from barefoot contessa “how easy is that?” ina garten)

Watermelon Mojitos

30 large fresh mint leaves, coarsely torn by hand
3-4 thick slices of fresh watermelon
12 ounces light rum, such as Barcardi
1/2 cup simple syrup (easy to make)
6 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice (3 limes)

Use a mortar and pestle to mash the mint leaves. Remove and discard the rind and seeds of the watermelon. Put the fruit into a food processor fitted with the steel blade and puree. Put the mashed mint into a large pitcher with 2 cups of pureed watermelon, the simple syrup, and lime juice and stir to combine. Pour the mixture into a pitcher for serving.

Place ice cubes in 6 glasses and pour the mojito mixture into the glasses. Garnish with sprigs of fresh mint and spears of watermelon.

Serve ice cold.

DD Tip: Don’t over do it with the fresh made watermelon juice or if you do strain as best as possible to avoid seeds and too much pulp.
