As I said in my last post, I’ve had a recent obsession with Tequila. Add that to my obsession with mint, watermelon, and fancy mixed drinks and you get this refreshing Watermelon-Mint Cocktail! What’s not to love about this drink? It’s sweet, fruity, and unbelievably refreshing. Plus, I absolutely love the intense, vibrant hot pink color of the watermelon juice. So pretty.
I infused this cocktail with mint, but I’ve also tried rosemary in this recipe before and it tasted pretty damn awesome as well. I got my mint from my indoor herb garden, and since I didn’t want to completely demolish my mint plant, I opted to make the mint stretch a little farther by creating a mint simple syrup instead of muddling the mint as you would ordinarily do when making a mojito. This recipe will give you a little more simple syrup than you need, so pour the unused simple syrup in a cruet or flask, stick it in the fridge and break it out next time you want to make a mojito or another beverage!
