Watermelon Mojitos: these summer refreshing drinks are sweet, tangy and full of flavor. The perfect cocktail for parties and get-togethers.Â
Here in Miami there’s only one thing that can beat the heat: MOJITOS. Refreshing with lime and mint, these cocktails are the perfect drink for parties, get-togethers and poolside. Watermelon adds a different dimension bringing sweetness and a beautiful color.
When I grew up, there was always pitcher full of watermelon juice in my fridge. We drank a lot of natural fruit juices and definitely theseÂ Watermelon MojitosÂ areÂ the adult version of my favorite childhood drink. The mint just brings it over the top. It givesÂ out the natural flavor in an unexpected way.
This summer I am enjoying every second and not taking anything for granted. My youngest daughter is starting Kindergarten in a new school and I’ll have to juggle 2 different school and 2 different schedules. With the work on the blog and the girls, September is going to hectic and exciting. I am nervous for her because she doesn’t know anybody at this new school. Although she’s very outgoing and outspoken.

So before summer ends I try to sneak in aÂ date night with my hubby and enjoy deliciousÂ Watermelon Mojitos. If you’re not an alcohol drinker, ditch the rum and make it a Mocktail! It’s so easy and they look very pretty.
See how cute the watermelon balls look? My daughters kept stealing them and I ended up using the whole watermelon. They also look pretty on fruit salads. The intense red color is very eye catching.
I hope you can try these delicious Watermelon MojitosÂ eÂ at home. If you do, please upload a pic on Instagram and tag me @Livingsweetmoments or use the hashtag #LivingSweet. I promise to repost it.
