Spring Fever Cocktail Recipes

Spring is defi here and you know what that means right ladies??!!?  Yup …fun, refreshing colorful cocktails!  Here are my favorite easy, breezy recipes to help get you through the day!

Watermelon Mojito: Not your average mojito!  Martha Stewart knows her cocktails.  Minus the alcohol to make it kid-friendly.

Watermelon mojito

What you need:

  • 4 ounces seedless watermelon, cut into 1/2-inch cubes (about 3/4 cup), plus a small wedge for garnish
  • 2 ounces white rum
  • 1/2 cup ice cubes
DIRECTIONS:
  1. In a heavy large glass, combine mint, lime, and sugar. Using a muddler, mash together mint and lime until sugar is dissolved. Add watermelon, and muddle until broken down. Stir in rum and ice cubes. Pour into an 8-ounce serving glass and garnish with a watermelon wedge. Serve immediately.
