Thirsty Thursday--Watermelon Mojito


That's the only word that I can use to describe this drink.
It is the perfect, perfect, perfect summer cocktail.

I know it's getting late in the summer and if you are like me,
you are wanting summer to end.
It's just too darn hot, but this cocktail makes you forget about 100 degrees and 99% humidity.
It makes you happy!!

I actually got out the juicer for this one.
It's kind of special.
Two of my all-time favorite flavors--watermelon and mint.

Yes, I said it again.

Watermelon Mojito
(makes a large mojito)

10 mint leaves
1-2 tablespoons sugar (depending on how sweet your melon is)
4 ounces watermelon juice
3 ounces rum
juice from 1/2 lime
club soda
mint leaves and watermelon pieces for garnish

In a tall glass muddle the mint leaves and sugar until well combined.  Add the watermelon juice, rum, and lime juice.  Top with club soda and garnish with mint and watermelon pieces.
