watermelon mojito

I love watermelon cocktails, and who doesn’t like mojito….. That’s why this one is my dreams come true in hot days.
And the best part is… there is  no sugar added! Watermelon gives natural sweetness to the cocktail,  which makes it not only healthier but also gives interesting, new flavor to the classic mojito.  So here I’m presenting my ”fit mojito”. It’s super tasty and refreshing! Of course most healthy will be in VIRGIN VERSION !!!  🙂
