I am a really very poor fruit eater. But, I began enjoying fruits after starting this blog. And why is it so? Because, I started making fun drinks using fresh fruits. You can get an idea of how much I’ve started to consume fruits from the drinks category of this blog. Now fruits are not boring to me anymore. What is your experience? Do you love to eat fruits? I would love to hear from you.
Today I am going to share with you a watermelon mojito recipe. An amazing way to a give twist to fresh watermelons. For me watermelon is one of the very few fruits that I never get bored of. As a proof you will find different watermelon based recipes in near future that I am currently working on.
Anyways lets get back to this watermelon mojito recipe. It is super simple to prepare. Muddle a few pieces of watermelon with fresh mint leaves and you are set! For this non-alcoholic drink, I combined this muddled watermelon with lime juice and sparkling apple cider. However, you can use rum if you want to make it a traditional alcoholic mojito drink
