When I think of backyard summer parties, I think of watermelon. Eating watermelon is good for you! Sure it’s a fruit so it’s healthy, but it can actually help lower blood pressure. It also contains vitamins A, B6, C magnesium and potassium. Plus, it’s great for helping you stay hydrated in hot weather. I guess it’s only natural that when I was planning a little get together, I began thinking of watermelon cocktails. While this watermelon mojito isn’t exactly a health drink, you can feel good about it since you’re adding the fresh fruit to the drink! This Watermelon Mojito Recipe is so yummy that it made our top recipes of 2018 list!
Sometimes you have to count the little things, right?
Seriously though, a watermelon mojito is a really yummy cocktail that is simple to make and all your guests will enjoy. So let’s get started!
What kind of soda is in a mojito?
Club soda or seltzer water is best for making a mojito. If you don’t have either of those on hand, you could also try a lemon-lime soda.
What type of alcohol is in a mojito?
Any white rum will work for a mojito. After you have made this once, you can try experimenting with different flavors. A citrus flavored rum would work well in this watermelon mojito.

I used the Torani Watermelon Syrup to boost the watermelon flavor, and add a little sweetness to the cocktail. It’s really simple to make delicious coctails using Torani syrups.
