Strawberry Watermelon Mojito

Take lime and mint, the classics of the mojito, and combine them with strawberry and watermelon, for a cooling summer beverage.

Strawberry Watermelon Mojito

Just a quick fly-by since I promised to post this in the 4th of July recipes post.  My computer is runnin' slow as Moses tonight anyway. I'm pretty sure its memory is a bit sluggish and I know how it feels.

Hope everybody is having a great start to what is hopefully a long holiday weekend - Happy Independence Day!

A refreshing summer beverage, that borrows the classic lime and mint of the mojito, and marries it with strawberry and watermelon - a great adult cocktail for any summer celebration. Here's how to make one.

If you think this sounds yummy, I'd sure it if you'd click to pin it, tweet it, stumble it, or share it on Facebook to help spread the word - thanks!

Recipe: Strawberry Watermelon Mojito

©From the Kitchen of Deep South Dish
Prep time: 10 min | Yield: Makes 1

Ingredients
  • 2 large strawberries, hulled, rinsed and coarsely chopped
  • 1 cup of chopped, seedless watermelon
  • Juice of one lime
  • 1-1/2 to 2 ounces of simple syrup, or to taste
  • 5 mint leaves
  • 2 ounces of good rum
  • Ice to fill glass
  • Club soda or lemon-lime soda
  • Lime curls and/or extra mint leaves, for garnish, optional
Instructions

In a blender, whirl the strawberries and watermelon. Strain out pulp if desired. Add the lime juice and simple syrup. In a tall highball or collins glass, add the mint leaves and muddle with the handle of a wooden spoon, just enough to release the oils of the mint. Add 2 ounces of rum on top and fill glass with ice. Top it off with the strawberry watermelon mixture and a splash of lemon lime or club soda; stir well and garnish.
