Fresh Watermelon Mojito

It’s almost Memorial Day weekend – the unofficial start of summer! That means it’s time to crank up the grill and treat yourself to a fresh watermelon mojito.

A cold, juicy slice of watermelon on a hot summer day is pretty amazing, but if you put that watermelon in a glass with fresh mint, lime, simple syrup and some rum, you have summer in a glass! In honor of the unofficial start of summer, I’ve created a delicious fresh watermelon mojito you can enjoy all summer long!

The watermelon and simple syrup give this drink the right amount of sweet and the lime gives it a hint of tart. This crowd-pleaser is an easy cocktail to make in large batches. Serve it in a pitcher all summer long.

    1. Thanks for stopping by, Kelsey! It’s a pretty tasty drink! And thank you – the glasses are from Easy Tiger Co.!

  1. OMG, I LOVE THIS DRINK! (All caps were totes necessary.)

    But seriously. You’ve made the most summery beautiful drink, and I have watermelon AND mint and rum at my house, so you KNOW I’m gonna be whipping these up for the fam this weekend! Because how could I not?

    Thanks so much for participating in the Great Blogger BBQ with us today. This has been SO much fun! I hope you and yours have a lovely holiday weekend!

  2. Love the sound of this cocktail! Perfect to add to a picnic and so refreshing! It’s also a great way to change it up when you get tired of trying to eat a huge watermelon with only two people in the house. Thanks!

What do you think? Katie loves to hear from you!
