Mojito Watermelon Recipe

Here's something a little bit different than your average watermelon.

At the beginning of every summer I go crazy with watermelon. I buy several and eat and eat and eat. I love it. So when I had an overload of watermelon in my fridge, I thought I should find some different ways to serve it.

While this mojito version is good with its sticky sweetness and abundance of lime flavor, I personally, will stick to the simple version of just an ice cold wedge from the fridge.

Mojito Watermelon

from Heat Oven to 350


  • 1/4 C sugar
  • 1/4 C warm water
  • A pinch of salt
  • 1/4 C lime juice
  • 2 tsp. freshly grated lime zest
  • 1 medium large watermelon (8-10 lbs), cut into bite-sized chunks
  • 2 T finely chopped, fresh mint


In a medium sized bowl, mix together the sugar and water and stir until sugar is dissolved. (Make sure your water is warm so the sugar can dissolve quicker). Stir in the lime juice and the lime zest. You will want the mixture cool before you pour it over the watermelon, so just place it in the fridge for about an hour or so. Once cooled, stir in the chopped mint.

Take cold watermelon chunks and place in large bowl. Pour sugar mixture over watermelon and stir gently. Serve chilled.
