Watermelon mojito recipe

salty paloma watermelon mojito recipe

It's the last month of summer and we're keeping it cool with a refreshing watermelon mojito, topped off with our Havana cocktail rimmer. 

Made for mojitos, our latest cocktail rimmer Havana includes lime, mint, raw cane sugar, and of course - grapefruit zest to really bring out citrus and herbal notes to your cocktails.

The best thing about this is you can use it both as a cocktail rimmer garnish or directly in your drink. The traditional way of putting together a mojito is muddling a sugar cube with mint and rum, but we're just going to throw it all in a pitcher and serve this quick and easy.


  • 6 oz white rum
  • 1.5 cups fresh lime juice
  • 2 cups watermelon puree 
  • soda water
  • mint leaves
  • Havana cocktail rimmer 


  1. Pour 1 tablespoon of Havana cocktail rimmer on a plate
  2. Moisten the rim of your glass with a lime wedge and evenly dip your glass into rimmer
  3. Combine the mint, lime juice and 2 tablespoons of Havana cocktail rimmer in a small pitcher
  4. Muddle the ingredients with the back of a wooden spoon until the mint releases its fragrance
  5. Pour watermelon puree and rum into the pitcher and stir
  6. Fill rimmed glass with ice and pour mixture up to 3/4 of the glass and top with soda water
  7. Add mint leaves and lime wedges for garnish (optional)

We actually skipped the rum in this recipe, making a huge pitcher for a family dinner. It's a refreshing drink that tastes great for kids too!
