Watermelon Mojitos

We were watching the Food Network yesterday morning. Sunny Anderson (Cooking for Real) was making Watermelon Mojitos. Her recipe looked great, but you know I like a shortcut when it's possible. Instead of fresh lime juice and mint leaves I decided to use a Mojito mix that I already had on hand. By the way, the picture is the actual drinks I made (without any color enhancement!).


5 cups watermelon juice (about half of a medium size watermelon??)
2 cups mojito mixer (Rose’s traditional flavor)
1 1/2 cups white rum
lemon-lime soda

To get the watermelon juice: Puree fresh watermelon cubes in a blender in batches. Pour through a strainer to remove pulp (there won’t be much pulp to remove).

Mix watermelon juice, mojito mixer and rum in a pitcher. Pour into glasses over ice and top with lemon-lime soda.

Yield: 8 to 10 servings
