It is hot and humid outside. Watermelon is my favorite fruit this time of the year.

Sweet, juicy and hydrating! It is also perfect for cocktail recipes like this Watermelon Mojito recipe.

A delicious combination of watermelon juice, lime juice, some simple syrup, Bacardi white rum, mint and sparkling water. It only takes 5 minutes to make and makes the perfect drink to sip on by the pool or while you are sitting at the backyard.

This Watermelon Mojito Recipe could easily be transformed into a party cocktail – make a bug batch of it and serve it in a pitcher.

Can you make this watermelon mojito recipe sugar free?

Yes! You can sweeten it with liquid Stevia and skip the simple syrup. I’d say 1 tsp Stevia should be perfect for one cocktail.

You can also find Stevia sweetened simple syrups online.
