Instructions

Muddle the fresh mint leaves and watermelon chunks in a large pitcher until the leaves are well-bruised and the watermelon is crushed.

Add the white rum, lime juice, and simple syrup to the pitcher and stir to combine.

Chill the mixture in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.

Just before serving, stir in the club soda.

Fill glasses with ice and pour the mojito mixture over the ice.

Stir gently and garnish with a sprig of fresh mint, a lime wedge, and a few chunks of watermelon.

Serve immediately and repeat as needed!

Notes

Use a sturdy or muddler to crush the watermelon chunks and fresh mint leaves well, you want to release those sweet juices and oils! Fresh mint leaves can be substituted with basil leaves or even lemongrass for a twist on the classic mojito recipe. For a lighter drink, reduce the amount of white rum or substitute it with a clear spirit like vodka or gin.

You can make the simple syrup ahead of time, it keeps well in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.

Chill your glasses in the freezer before filling with the mojito mixture for an extra frosty drink. To make this recipe more festive, serve in tall glasses or add a splash of grenadine for a fruity twist.
