Greek Strawberry Melon Mojito
Watermelon has been celebrated for thousands of years, so it’s no wonder why it reigns as the supreme summer fruit of Greece. During the summer, watermelon is often featured as a dessert on the restaurant menus of Greece, such as Karpouzopita (watermelon pie), as a refreshing salad known as Karpouzi me Feta (Greek watermelon with feta) and, of course, as a cocktail like this one!
Watermelon is also believed to have some health benefits and was even praised by Hippocrates for its healing properties. A cocktail with healing properties? Now we’re talking!
With this mojito recipe, we combine fresh Greek watermelon, strawberries, mint leaves, and lime juice with Ouzo, homemade strawberry simple syrup, and a splash of Greek sparkling water, then garnish with a strawberry, watermelon ball, and mint sprig to transport your taste buds to the islands of Greece with a refreshing summer cocktail. Pair it with the fresh ingredients in this recipe for homemade tzatziki sauce with pita chips to really dive into the art of Greek cuisine!
