Non Alcoholic Watermelon Mojito

It doesn’t need to be five o’clock somewhere to have this drink!

I just graduated 8th grade this past Wednesday which means summer vacation is in full swing! What’s a better way to start the summer, then with a nice cold drink. It is super fresh and will surely cool you down from the hot sun. Best of all, it’s alcohol free so everyone can enjoy it. But I did add an adult option of tequila if you’re more of a purist. (And over 21!)

I made this for company on Shavuot. Everyone loved it!
