Watermelon Mojito

Watermelon MojitoThe addition of fresh watermelon and raspberries makes this spin on the mojito recipe hard to pass up. And, it is perfect for a hot, summer day or a backyard BBQ.

Definitely use fresh fruit and lime juice for maximum flavor. We are using light rum, but you can try a darker rum for a deeper flavor. Also, we strained our fruit and mint leaves after muddling for a smoother texture.
