With only a few ingredients you can create a refreshing mojito that tastes just like summer.

Watermelon & Cucumber Mojito Recipe:
Serves 6-8, or makes 1 pitcher.
- 2 juiced limes.
- 1/2 cup mint.
- 1 large bottle sparkling water.
- 8 oz of white rum.
In your pitcher, squeeze the juice from 2 limes. Muddle 1/2 cup of mint and a cup of cubed watermelon, then add 8 ounces of white rum, sparkling water, and ice. Add cucumber slices, mint sprigs, and watermelon for garnish.
As a non-alcoholic option, simply exclude the rum! Then for the guests that do want their mojito to be alcoholic, add in 2 ounces of white rum to their individual beverages. Voila! Versatile, refreshing, fruity, and tasty.
