Blackberry Watermelon Mojitos

It’s Friday, the weekend is near and the sun is shining outside! To celebrate summer, I’ve got you covered this weekend with these Blackberry Watermelon Mojitos. This unique spin on the favourite Mojito cocktail is really refreshing and the perfect summer drink.

I love making different kinds of mojitos – whether they are berry flavoured or have a tropical twist – because they are minty, light, delicious and the ultimate chiller. The watermelon adds a subtle yet additionally fruity flavour, making for a naturally sweeter cocktail.

Watermelon is 92% water but has many health benefits including significant amounts of vitamin A, B6, C and it helps improve blood flow. This fruit’s natural sweetness makes it a perfect addition to this refreshing cocktail and helps you skip on the simple syrup that is sometimes overdone in many mojitos because of the tart lime flavour. It’s great juiced or blended and mixed with vodka, gin or rum – though the blackberries are an optional addition, I feel it adds a unique twist!

If you want to use something healthier than club soda then be sure to use sparkling water. It’s similar in taste to club soda, and still has fizz. You’ll need to kick up the lime and watermelon though!

This mojito is perfect for those summer BBQs and get togethers with friends –    or for just sitting on the patio relaxing on a Friday!
