Whether planning a Sunday brunch or 4th of July party, a fresh and healthy fruity summer cocktail like these Skinny Strawberry & Watermelon Mojitos should fit the bill anytime.
It’s the perfect time of year to start thinking about warm weather entertaining.
What’s great about this beverage is that it’s blended with fresh fruit – think smoothie meets a muddled cocktail. It has a surprising texture that’s almost a little crispy. It’s also easy to turn into a mocktail by swapping out the rum with apple juice or white grape juice.
