RECIPE NOTES

  1. To make non-alcoholic watermelon mojito, swap rum with some club soda, apple cider fizz or just with water.
  2. You can also add chopped watermelon pieces to this mojito.
  3. If you don't want to make watermelon juice, then you can directly muddle watermelon pieces in the serving glass.
  4. You can also use basil leaves if you are not a fan of mint leaves.
  5. I have made this mojito with fresh watermelon cubes, but you can also use pre-cut watermelon.
