Since Friday was National Watermelon Day, I thought I’d steal this one from the PETA website because it sounds delicious & looks even yummier. :cool
Watermelon Mojito Frozen Daiquiris
8 oz. watermelon juice from 2 1/2 cups chopped watermelon
2 oz. fresh lime juice
1 oz. mint syrup (recipe below)
8 oz. light rum
14 oz. club soda
Place chopped watermelon in a food processor or blender and process until juiced and slightly pulpy.
Add lime juice, mint syrup, rum, and club soda and continue processing until well mixed.
Fill two ice cube trays with the mixture and freeze overnight.
The next day, spoon the frozen mojito cubes into the blender or food processor and process until smooth. (If you use a standard blender, you’ll have to stop and stir the contents a few times.)
Pour into glasses and serve.
Makes approximately two 12-oz. daiquiris
Mint Syrup Ingredients:
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup mint leaves, loosely packed
Mint Syrup Directions:
Place the water and sugar in a pot. Heat until the sugar dissolves.
Cool mixture to room temperature. Then place the mint leaves in the mixture and muddle.
Steep mint leaves for 20 minutes.
Strain and discard leaves.
(Note: You will have more syrup than needed for this recipe. Save the extra syrup for use in other cocktails.)
As I said, I stole this one, so feel free to visit the PETA website for some interesting comments & even more ways to enjoy this great summer drink recipe! :cool
