Watermelon Mint Mojito Recipe

Labor Day calls for BBQs and the last of Summer-everything. Wearing white, pool days, summer fruits, and therefore summer cocktails. This Watermelon Mint Mojito on our lifestyle blog today will send off the sunny season with a splash of rum, a dash of mint, and a whole lot of everyone’s favorite melon. The pretty-in-pink cocktail is the perfect treat to bring to wherever you’re spending this break-from-work holiday. We forgot to mention: it’s incredibly refreshing! So, since we know that SoCal sun is going to be in full effect next Monday, you’ll definitely want to sip on this to stay cool.

 

Ingredients (serves 6):
  • Mini Watermelon
  • Light Rum
  • Club Soda
  • Mint leaves
  • 2 limes

    Wow such great styling and photography!! I made a mint mojito earlier this summer and found it so tricky to capture on camera. Maybe it was because I used a wood background. You have so many cute cocktail accessories!
