Green melon and mint mojito

Serves: 4
Total Time: 20 mins


  • 1 small honeydew melon
  • 125ml (½ cup) light rum
  • juice of 4 limes + slices, to garnish
  • 1 handful fresh mint leaves
  • 2 handfuls crushed ice
  • 1L (4 cups) soda water



On a cutting board, halve the melon, then scoop out and discard the pips. Using a melon baller, scoop out balls of the flesh. Place in a bowl and set aside.


Among 4 glasses, equally divide the rum, lime juice, mint leaves, crushed ice and soda water. Add the melon balls and lime slices to each glass and serve.
