Fresh Melon Mojito with cantaloupe and watermelon. Perfect for National Mojito Day!

This Melon Mojito uses fresh seasonal fruits and herb for a superb fresh market cocktail flavor experience. Sipping this makes you feel like you’re drinking exceedingly fresh and healthy. Though, I am not making any claims to alcoholic drinks being within the realm of healthy lifestyle choices. The fresh fruit just makes it a little less of a guilty pleasure.

July 11 is National Mojito Day. Choose a simple classic Mojito cocktail to celebrate the day or go with a fresh fruit Melon Mojito.

15 fresh Mint Leaves

I used Shellback Rum while creating this Mojito variation. However, feel free to use the rum of choice to recreate this drink at home. Happy sipping!
