CHIPOTLE WATERMELON MOJITO
1/2 C. Watermelon, Cubed
1/2 Lime, Sliced then Quartered
5 - 6 Fresh Spearmint Leaves
1 Tbsp. Simple Syrup
3 Dashes Chipotle Sauce
GARNISH: 1 Watermelon chunk, 1 Lime wheel
TOOLS: 1 Long (tall) glass, Muddler
Add the watermelon, lime, mint leaves and simple syrup to your tall glass and muddle to release the juices and the aroma of the mint.
Add your rum and your favorite chipotle sauce (I like Cholula), give the cocktail a quick stir.
Fill the glass with ice.
Top off with the club soda.
Add a straw and garnish.
Why the hot sauce when it's already too hot outside? Because watermelons taste great with a little hot sauce and hot sauce actually helps cool your body down.
Yep. It's that easy! Sadly I was forced to drink mine in my air conditioned house ...
Enjoy and Cheers, M'Dears!
