Oh, Rhett ~ It's So Hot!

Gotta love Scarlett.  Wow, did she endure some hot days in the south!

Stay cool ~ it's warming up.  Gardening makes one thirsty.  Try this lip-licking, thirst busting, refreshing
drink when the work is done ...aaah, yummy!

Watermelon Mojito
        20 mint leaves, chopped
                  2 tablespoons superfine sugar
               1/2 cup fresh lime juice
           Crushed ice
                  3/4 cup light rum
           6 ounces seedless watermelon, pureed

In the bottom of a large shaker, muddle the mint, sugar and 1/4 cup of the lime juice. Fill the shaker with ice. Add the rum, watermelon and the remaining 1/4 cup of lime juice; shake well. Strain into old-fashioned glasses over ice.


  1. I love a good mojito, this one sounds great! I substitute vodka for the rum though, rum gives me a headache. Thanks for the recipe, gonna try it.

  2. I sure could have used a watermelon mojito yesterday! Sounds refreshing and delicious -- Thanks for the recipe.
