Summer and hot weather means one thing to me, Watermelon. I love the cool, refreshing slices and chunks of the sweet goodness. There is nothing better than watermelon slices on hot, hot, day, until I discovered the Watermelon Mojito. Oh my! this drink is is like heaven in a glass. You have the sweet watermelon puree, lime juice, a little sugar, and mint with rum. This drink is so tasty and refreshing, and If you have your own mint plant on your patio, it's even easier.
If you have never made a mojito or watermelon mojito, you will possibly learn a new word, muddle. Muddle is to to mash or crush ingredients with a spoon or a muddler (a rod with a flattened end). Now, I don't have a muddler per se, I use the round end of my wooden juicer, and it works fine, I just have to use a short glass to "muddle" the mint leaves, sugar, and lime juice. If you have a muddler, you can make this drnk in a shaker.
