Virgin Watermelon Mojito



Virgin Watermelon Mojito
Yield: Serves 6-8

Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups of cubed watermelon
2 limes
1/2 cup fresh mint leaves
1 quart sparkling water
2 San Pellegrino Limonata cans

Directions:

In your pitcher muddle together half your watermelon and your mint leaves. Add in the rest of the watermelon, all liquid and the juice of one lime. Slice the second lime and let float in pitcher. Serve in wine glasses or tall tumblers with a sprig of fresh mint. Enjoy this refreshing beverage on a hot day paired with some delicious BBQ.
I grew the mint in my garden and have tons overflowing in my beds, but if you don't have access to mint at home its fairly cheap at the grocery store. It is beyond easy to grow (it literally grows it self and is almost weed-like) so feel free to plant some and see what happens!! Enjoy!
