For Monty and Meryl

This recipe is for the only 2 readers I apparently have, judging from the response to my last post: Meryl and Monty. You are the only ones allowed to use this. No one else. They lose! Thank you guys for reading my blog, and I hope you get some use out of it ;-)

These are Icy Watermelon Mojitos! SO GOOD for a hot summer afternoon, and a great alternative to the super-sugary traditional mojitos. The watermelon is so sweet, it doesn't need any other sweetener! For a more drinkable version, just don't freeze the watermelon first. Enjoy!

Icy Watermelon Mojito (serves 2)

  • 1/2 small watermelon, scooped out into small chunks and frozen; thaw slightly
  • 2 fresh limes, juiced
  • 3 fresh mint sprigs
  • liquid to achieve desired consistency (use water for a virgin mojito, I used white wine, I'm sure vodka would work...I have faith that you can figure it out ;-)
  • 2 lime slices and 2 mint sprigs for garnish
  1. Place all ingredients except liquid in blender and blend on medium.
  2. Add liquid and blend until desired consistency is reached.
  3. Pour into margarita glasses and garnish with lime slice and mint sprig.
  4. Go lie in your hammock in the shade and enjoy!


  1. So this is like a quadruple awesome post and I am really struggling to express my excitement here - Let's try a combo of "YAY!", "IN YO FACE, STUPID ILLITERATE PEOPLE WHO DON'T READ KAREN'S BLOG", and "MOJJJIIIIITOOOOOOO!!!!!"

    I am moderately satisfied by such a combo and I hope it communicates my sentiments. :)

    I just wish us three could enjoy it together! (Also wish I could see what your consistency looks like, Ms. Moleski)

  2. HAHA I think your words expressed yourself pretttty well! ;-) I wish we could all hang out and enjoy them together too!

    My consistency was that of a very smooth slushie, I would say. Still thick and icy, but smooth. T'was deeeeeeeelish!

  3. Sounds fabulous! Done and done...i know what I'm doing this weekend...makin mojitos!

  4. sooo i barely know you and read your blog all the time - love the recipes and am making the mojitos now as we have a giant watermelon and a garden full of mint... :)
