There’s nothing better than watermelon in the summertime. We have eaten it plain, with salt, with cheese (a personal favorite), in a salad, you name it. Crazy how versatile this fruit is. But I have to admit, this is my first time using watermelon in a drink recipe.

The mojito – complete with fresh mint leaves and rum. But also with a bit of a spin – I left out the lime (though you could definitely add a squeeze if you prefer) and used coconut rum and a bit of strawberries for a boost in flavor. Delicious.
