It’s Thuuuuursday, 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 Friiiiiiiday, time to make yourself a mojito 😉
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!
- 2 (1 inch) cubes fresh watermelon
- 1 small lime (juiced)
- 1 tsp sugar
- 1 tbsp fresh mint leaves
- 3 slices fresh jalapeño (de-seeded)
- 2 oz white rum
- 1 cup ginger ale
Add the watermelon, lime juice, sugar, mint and jalapeno to a glass.
Muddle everything together.
Add the rum and ice to the glass. Top with the ginger ale.
Light and refreshing with just a slight kick of spice, the perfect mojito recipe for sipping by the pool!
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!
