Watermelon Mojitos

The one constant about summer has to be the wonderful, juicy taste and texture of ice cold ripe watermelon. Here is another way to get that summer “comfort” food….okay, cocktail…whatever!

 

  • 9 oz. tequila
  • 3 tbsp. agave syrup (natural sweetner)
  • 36 mint leaves
  • 6 tbsp. freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 4 cups cubed and seedless watermelon
  • crushed ice and club soda
  • thin watermelon wedges for garnish
  • 6 x 12 oz. glasses

To each glass add 1  1/2 oz. tequila, 2 tsp. agave syrup and 6 mint leaves. Using the handle of a wooden spoon muddle the mixture for 20 seconds. Add 1 tbsp lime juice to each glass.

In a blender, puree the watermelon until smooth. Divide equally among the glasses. Top with ice and soda water and gently stir. Add a thin wedge of watermelon on edge of the glass and serve.

Ahhhh yes…watermelon. Yummy.
