Last week my family and I drove to Wisconsin to celebrate Memorial day with my parents. And while I was there, I decided I wanted to incorporate some Booze into a watermelon dish.
Did you ever soak watermelon in vodka when you were in college? – Yeah like that. But I didn’t soak this watermelon in too much Booze, because these days getting tipsy isn’t necessarily a goal for me. I wanted just enough to taste it. So I was all about marinading watermelon in some sort of tequila drink when my mom told me.
” No, you need to make the watermelon into a mojito!” Great Idea Mom! ( By the way, I should tell you that my mom is the hand model for this post.) So while our boys were napping, we left them with my parents and my husband and I went on a date to the grocery store and picked up a watermelon mostly to have for dinner ( and a little bit to turn into booze). I simply mixed up 1 mojito in this bowl. 2 shots of rum, mint and lime juice ( I omitted the sugar). and poured it into a container of watermelon. Great looking hands mom! I then put the lid on the container and shook it for about 2 minutes. I wanted to make sure ALL the watermelon was coated. I then let the watermelon marinate in the fridge for about 3 hours- until supper time. It turned out to be a GREAT and refreshing summer treat!
