Skinny Watermelon Mojito
Don't you just love summer?
I love all the fresh herbs, veggies, and fruit that is available.
And I especially love summer drinks.
Here's my new fav.
I like to call it a Watermelon Mojito.
But technically I don't think I could call this a mojito. I'm pretty sure when I add things like Diet 7Up and Coconut rum…it's no longer a mojito.
But this is my blog, and my drink, so I'll do what I want!
Here's how to:
10 pieces watermelon, cubed and muddled.
8 pieces mint leaves
1 shot coconut rum
1/4 can Diet Cherry 7Up
This is how I "muddled" my melon. Just smashed it with a fork until I got as much juice as possible out of it. It ended up being about 1/4 cup of watermelon juice.
Then I added the mint to the juice and "muddled" it together. I mushed up the leaves with the juice and a couple "glugs" of lime juice.
Add the rest of the ingredients to a glass of ice and stir.
No, I didn't add oats…they just happened to make my "ingredients photo". I
would imagine that would be pretty gross.
I love that it's sweet, yet mild. And I really love that it's so low in calories. I'm thinking it's weighing in at about 80 calories.
So get out there and enjoy summer!
