RECIPE- THE UNUSUAL WATERMELON AND GINGER MOJITO

Mojitos are part of most events and parties during summers. There is something about these tangy and minty drinks that no one ever seems to say no to. I always serve my guests some kind of drink when they arrive. This not only helps them to freshen up, hydrate and chill before the party begins, but I believe starting to eat dehydrated has bad effects on the digestive system. People tend to start eating without beginning with some kind of hydrating source and drink more while and after finishing which is not good for health.

Mojito is traditionally an alcoholic drink that has punch of vodka/rum and topped with fizzy soda. But, I can assure you that non alcoholic version of this is as delicious and much healthier, even kids can enjoy it. It will also aid in digestion and cool down the body temperature. What’s not to like?

So, here’s the recipe and I hope you will like it as much as I do!! Relish a cold glass and serve to your guests as well.

I also posted a recipe on healthy party food seriesย and this one is a true winner with kids and adults.

ENJOY!!

    1. I am glad you liked it babe!! And thank you for such a sweet comment.. I truly appreciate it.. I feel the same way about the variety of colours and tones put together and when food is colourful to see, it is more tempting to eat. I hope you like the drink as much as I do.. The addition of ginger may be little strange to some but I know a lot who enjoy that little kick. I am sure you know this but I thought it is worth mentioning. Steeping ginger for sometime intensifies the heat so if you are planning to let the ingredients mingle a little then reduce the quantity of ginger a bit. Take Care๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ˜š๐Ÿ˜š๐Ÿ’–
