Watermelon Mint Moscow Mule


Ahh summer - it's so close! If there's one thing I always look forward to, it's sitting on our patio with friends with a crisp, cold drink in hand. I love mint, and it always seems to be one of the herbs that grows like crazy in our herb garden, so I'll add it to drinks and my bottled water to add a refreshing note. If you prefer or need your beverage to be a mocktail, this drink is just as good without the booze. Cheers!




1. Place watermelon and mint in a blender and process until smooth. Pour the mixture into 2 glasses (I prefer copper mugs for this).


2. Place one shot of tequila (or vodka) into each glass. Fill each glass with ice.


3. Squeeze the juice of 1/2 lime into each glass. Fill with ginger beer.


4. Garnish each glass with lime wedges and fresh mint. Serve immediately.
