Watermelon mojito

For one drink

2 oz Bicardi Limon
4 lime wedges - two uses
6 mint leaves
1 oz simple syrup
club soda
1 oz watermelon, seeded


Tear the mint leaves in half and muddle together with three of the lime wedges in a cocktail shaker. Add the rum and simple syrup. Pour into a highball glass, filled with crushed ice. Top with club soda. Muddle the watermelon in the cocktail shaker, and pour on top of the mojito. Place remaining lime wedge on the side of the glass. Use a straw!

This is amazing..........the limon rum makes a huge difference. It goes down very very easily.

How "muddled" for the watermelon? Like smushed to bits or still a bit chunky?

Smushed to bits gives you more juice....
Chunky gives you something to try to grab with the straw (which gets decidedly harder the more you drink).

Either way works just fine by me.

Heh heh heh...I could use one of these about now. And I think I'll try mine chunky. This sounds perfect for my "sisters week" at the end of the month. Thanks Vera.
