It’s Thursday, which means that it’s almost the weekend!

And since 4th of July falls on a Saturday this year, most people have Friday off, which means it’s basically Friday! Time to make yourself a mojito! 😉

Watermelon Jalapeno Mojito Recipe

This mojito recipe was inspired by my mission to create the perfect cocktail to pair with the Chorizo Tostadas with Watermelon Serrano Salsa I made earlier this week.

Let me just say, mission accomplished!

Since I made these in the middle of the afternoon, on a Monday, I made one as the recipe suggests, then I made one without the rum to sip on while I finished the days work. Both were equally delicious!

Because there’s so much flavor in the mint, watermelon and jalapeño, simply topped with ginger ale, this makes a delicious virgin cocktail, AKA mocktail!
