So what if it’s Monday and I am thinking about sipping on one of these. Nothing wrong with that!
I discovered this perfect summer drink on Dara’s site not long ago. I met Dara at evo ’10, and shared a few laughs with her during our Food & Photography Workshop that we attended. I connected with her right away and it’s a shame that we live across the country from each other…I wouldn’t mind making another trip out west to visit Dara, Maria and Jyl!
(Dara is one talented chickie…awesome cook, takes gorgeous photographs and is not afraid to take on this lobster!!)
If you’ve got some serious mint growing like I do, then go get yourself a watermelon right now while they’re sweet and treat yourself to one – or a couple – of these amazing drinks. Enjoy!
- 3 cups 1/2-inch cubes watermelon
- 12 medium to large fresh mint sprigs
- 6 tbsp fresh lime juice
- 2 tbsp granulated sugar
- 6 oz. light rum
- 4 lime slices
- 4 mint sprigs
- Place watermelon cubes in a blender. Blend until smooth.
- In a small pitcher, combine fresh mint leaves, sugar, and fresh lime juice. Using the handle of a wooden spoon, muddle the ingredients to release the oils from the mint. Take care not to muddle to the point where the leaves fall apart. Pour rum and the watermelon puree into the pitcher and stir gently.

Aggie, thanks so much for posting about these mojitos. I’m so glad you enjoyed them. I haven’t actually made them since I first posted the recipe, but you have inspired me to pull out my blender again. Great photo of the mojito!
Oops, I hit “submit” too soon. I thoroughly enjoyed having a chance to meet you at EVO and I hope we are able to meet again soon. You’re a sweetheart!
oww oww that looks fab! I’m not a big drinker, but I’d break for one of them 😉 Watermelon is just amazing right now
This drink looks incredible! I once had a watermelon martini that was to die for so I’m sure this drink would be just as good!
Sounds so refreshing and delicious – I wish I had one right now!
Sweet! Get the blender fired up…I’m coming over.
I wish I had the chance to meet at EVO but we’re meeting now. Your site is great, and this looks awesome!
This is my way to enjoy this essential summer fruit.
Oh, that looks sooooo good! Perfect for a warm summer day… and night!!!
ooooh this is something I could get on board with! Love!
Looks so cook & refreshing!!!
Dara is rocking that Lobster and you are with this Watermelon Mojito! I bet you gals had tons of fun together at evo. One day we all need to be at the same place at the same time 🙂
what a perfect summer drink! I’ve had a watermelon margarita, never a mojito, but you’ve convinced me to try!! 🙂
It is so stinking hot here right now that all I can think about is drinking drinks like this. This looks so refreshing!
These look amazing, great photos!
Oh my yum.
If I wasn’t a couple weeks away from having a baby I’d be drinking that as we speak. I have all the ingredients!
that looks so delicious and refreshing! I don’t usually like the taste of alcohol, but I’d be willing to try that 🙂
With all the fresh mint in our garden we make our fare share of mojitos! But hey, it’s 5 o’clock somewhere right!
This looks incredibly refreshing! Enjoy one for me, Aggie!
Hello, i´m from france so my english knowledge is not that amazing. Please dont blame me. I read blogs to improve my english and i have to say that your blog was perfect readable for me, because the english is really clear and all the posts are perfect readable. I will come back, to improve my english even more. Thanks a lot 🙂
WOW! Even though the fall chill has started up here in Boston, these watermelon mojitos look fantastic. I’ll have to bookmark them for next summer 😉
somehow just now discovered your blog! and LOVE it! [chels]
I love mojitos! I must try this. Thanks, Aggie! Photographs are beautiful!
Oh these look delish and so refreshing! I think I may make some without the rum and just add a touch of extract so my girls can enjoy them with me! 🙂
First of all, I admire your blog. I started one, abandoned it shortly thereafter, started again and let it go by the wayside. I’m going to make one of these mojito’s….if it’s excellent, I’ll post it to the blog and give you full credit!
by the way: i googled “watermelon mojito” and out of the whole list of results I choose yours because:
1. it’s what i was looking for…a watermelon mojito
2. i plan on drinking them with a friend…who’s middle child’s nickname is Aggie
3. it was originally posted on August 9th, 2010….which was my 7th wedding anniversary! Kismet!!
I love watermelon and watermelon juice so I guess watermelon mojito is perfect for me. Adding fresh mint leaves, sugar, and fresh lime juice seems a wonderful idea too. I agree that your friend Dara is very daring while taking the lobster. As for the recipe, maybe I should buy a blender so that I could try this recipe.
