It’s BBQ time. Here’s a perfect refreshing summer drink. It’s a twist on the traditional Mojito. Usually they are made with club soda and a lot of sugar. I’ve taken the sugar down to two tablespoons. Added watermelon and came up with a Mojito that is great with or without the alcohol. Made in five minutes it’s great when entertaining people.

Ingredients

  • * 2 cups watermelon
  • * 30-35 mint leaves
  • * 3 1/2 cups Lemon Seltzer
  • * 1/4 cup lime juice
  • * 2 tbsp sugar (optional)
  • * 2 tbsp water (optional)
