Annie’s bday

As previously mentioned, yesterday was my darling friend, Anne’s birthday. So, of course, Peggy, Anne, and I celebrated the joyous occasion together. They came over after classes today and I made a new summer cocktail which we enjoyed and were so happy to be able to have “girl time” together.  We called Connor downstairs to take our picture…and although he took about a dozen, not one of them came out clear, so I used an artistic touch called Fresco in Photoshop to “enhance” it a bit. Believe it or not, it is less blurry now than it originally was! I know, that’s hard to imagine – but true all the same. It’s all good because after a couple of these drinks we couldn’t tell the difference anyhow. Happy Birthday, Anne – love you dearly! xoxo

Watermelon Mojitos

2 large limes, each cut into 8 wedges
1/4 cup fresh mint leaves
1/4 cup sugar
4 cups seedless watermelon cubes
1 cup light rum
Mint leaves and limes slices for garnish

In the bottom of a cocktail shaker; muddle half of the lime wedges, half of the mint leaves, half of the sugar, and half of the rum until the sugar is completely dissolved and the lime and mint are well crushed.

Strain the mixture into a 2-quart pitcher that is half-filled with ice. Repeat the muddling process with the remaining limes, mint, sugar, and rum and strain into the pitcher.

In a blender; puree the watermelon cubes.  Strain the watermelon juice into the pitcher and stir well to combine.

Serve over ice and garnish with additional mint sprigs and a slice of lime.

Serves 4
