Watermelon Mojito is an easy, no-cook, non-alcoholic drink. It is one of the best coolants for refreshing our summer.
Any refreshing drink is always a welcoming relief for us. And watermelon is in itself already so much cooling. Therefore, having it in this form is just a plus, especially for those who do not want or like to eat fruits.
Now, originally mojitos come under the category of cocktails. That means that it includes alcohol. For example, the commonly used alcohol in watermelon mojito is rum.
But we are not using any alcohol in this recipe. So, this will be identified as a mocktail. We are, instead, using soda for it.
I am sure you are well aware of the benefits of watermelon, so I will not list it here. Preparing this mojito makes achieving those benefits pretty interesting & cool (literally & figuratively😜)
You will be able to enjoy the perfect blend of sweetness, tanginess & fizz all in one. Hell, even the colour and its look is tempting enough.

Storing Your Watermelon Mojito
Now the question of storing this drink arises. You would wonder if we can store this drink or not. Yes, we can, but not for long.
It is best if you drink it fresh. It will taste the best when fresh. Keeping it for long will make it lose both its taste and freshness.
But if you want to store it, follow a few things. One way, as suggested before, would be to make the syrup and puree beforehand and store them. So that you can combine everything when you need it and it will still be fresh.
Another thing you can do is crush the ingredients. Add everything but leave the soda. Just add it while serving. (You can do the same with alcohol using them.)
So, that was it with the Watermelon Mojito recipe today. Watch the recipe video for precise details. Follow the recipe steps with images. Compare them side by side while cooking.
- You can double or triple the final amount of the mojito. You have to keep the measurement of the ingredient as per your requirement.
- Choose a ripe and juicy watermelon for this recipe. The watermelon should be heavy in size as well.
- Do not use mint that is not so fresh. It will give a bitter taste to the drink.
- You can also use sparkling water in the mojito. Adjust the watermelon crush as per that.
- Basil can also be substituted with mint in this drink.
- Similarly, for a healthy option, you can substitute sugar with honey.
Can I use Watermelon Puree?
Yes, you can. You can either use the readymade one or can even make one at home.
First, blend the watermelon chunks to puree & strain. Prepare sugar syrup. Add them to the glass & mix with other ingredients.
The preparation will be quicker if you have the puree and sugar syrup. But one thing to note is if you are making it fresh, ensure you have enough time on your hands. The ingredients need to be cool enough.
Garnish it with some watermelon pieces or lemon slices and mint leaves. And you are good to go! 👍 👍
