Watermelon Mojito Coolers
Sadly, summer is coming to an end. This weekend (Labor Day) marks the unofficial end of summer as kids are back in school, the weather starts cooling down for most of us on the east coast and apple picking becomes the next outdoor activity to do (I can’t wait for this!).
But before we head out of the season, let’s raise a glass to what was a quick, lovely and busy summer with these watermelon mojito coolers.
Cool, refreshing, easy-to-whip up and delicious. They are just what you want to make to use up the last of the juicy watermelons and a pitcher will be perfect as you get together with family and friends this weekend!!!
Watermelon Mojito Coolers
- 4-5 cups seeded watermelon, chilled
- 1 lime, juiced
- 3-4 sprigs of mint
- 1/4 cup simple syrup (more or less to taste)
- a dash of salt
- 2-3 tablespoons rum (optional)
- Ice cubes
I think the folks in Florida are the only ones looking forward to fall. We will gladly take some of the cooler weather. Please send some stat! 🙂
These drinks look wonderful, Zainab. Perfect for Labor Day weekend!
