Cantaloupe Mojito Recipe

A few weeks ago I shared a recipe for a super refreshing watermelon and pineapple cocktail. While we were mixing and matching fresh fruit and rum, we tried a melon mojito. Specifically, a cantaloupe mojito! I had seen a few recipes online that included simple syrup, rum, and one even had maple syrup. I definitely wasn’t in the mood to make simple syrup (We were lounging poolside!), and I’m not quite sure why I would add syrup to a cocktail. So, we came up with the lazy girl’s cantaloupe mojito. One sweet and simple drink to enjoy this summer!

I even bought a new muddler for the occasion. Sure, you can use the bottom of a spoon, but something is more fun about having a legitimate muddler. I hadn’t owned one before, so now I’m all ready to make mojitos!

There is something about a mojito that reminds me of good memories. Some of my best memories are highlighted by fruity cocktails. I suppose that’s not a bad thing.

Club soda adds just the right amount of fizz while the sugar sweetens this up perfectly.
