Since it’s summertime and yesterday was National Watermelon Day, we thought creating the perfect Watermelon Mojito would be the best way to kick off the weekend. It’s super refreshing and we know that the whole family will also love our “mocktail” Watermelon Mojito too. Here’s how you make both!

One thought on “Cocktail & Mocktail of the Month | Watermelon Mojito

  1. Besides pink being the best color ever, this sounds amazingly delish! Would also be amazing as a watermelon, mint and lemonade version (we can’t all be fans of coconut water). I found brown sugar to be an interesting ingredient though. Watermelon is so refreshing and provides great hydration to boot!
