Watermelon Tequila Mojito

31 Mar

I’m such a fruity drink girl. (if you haven’t noticed) We’ve been on a watermelon kick lately and it’s already getting warm here in TX – so I thought a nice refreshing watermelon infused drink would hit the spot.

I haven’t had a mojito in a long time and forgot how tasty they are. This one is no exception – the lime, mint, watermelon, and tequila are a dreamy combination. It’s not too sweet and has just enough of a kick for my liking, though you can easily make it stronger if you’re not a lightweight like me. Plus, how can a drink so bright and cheery be bad? I’m sure we’ll be having plenty of these throughout the season and I can’t wait!

Watermelon Tequila Mojito

10 mint leaves
1/2 of a lime, cut into three wedges
2 – 3 tsp sugar, depending on how sweet you like your drink
3 Tbsp tequila
Ice cubes
About 1/2 cup seedless watermelon, blended until liquidized and strained
Splash of lemon-lime soda or sparkling water
Mint and lime for garnish (optional)

In a glass, muddle the mint, lime wedges, and sugar. Add the tequila and stir to mix and dissolve the sugar.  Add ice, watermelon juice, and the soda or sparkling water and combine. Garnish with a slice of lime and mint leaves, if desired.

    This sounds amazing and since DH loves watermelon almost more than he loves me, this will be a winner! On a side note, what is this summer gonna be like when it’s already 80 degrees!?!!?!?
