Watermelon Mojito

by Erin

Watermelon, mint, lime juice and rum come together in this refreshing watermelon mojito. It is the perfect cocktail for the end of summer. 

Watermelon Mojito 1

The last day of summer is nearly upon us. Let us toast this second to last day with a cocktail that is nothing but summer – watermelon mojito! Watermelon and mint pair exceptionally well together, which I hadn’t discovered until my first sip of this beverage. This cocktail was the perfect way to use up some watermelon that was starting to get a bit mushy and was most appreciated while watching some Saturday college football.

Speaking of which, what a great day for the Big Ten Conference yesterday especially Indiana. Unranked and beat #18 Mizzou! There were a few other exciting games that ended in upsets yesterday too and most of the other Big Ten Teams pulled off wins as well – 12 wins and only one loss (Michigan). Ohio State had a bye week but I still had a great time watching all the other games.
