Water melon Mojito is a quick thirst quencher in this hot hot summer. Thick watermelon juice with lemon juice, sugar syrup or sugar, mint and sprite topped with some ice cubes together gives a satisfying feel in this hot summer. It is best to serve as a welcome drink for parties and in some other occasions. 

There are many varieties of Mojito available like strawberry mojitto , virjin Mojito, pine apple mojito and so on. Virjin mojito is almost the same like Indian lime soda or lemonade or sarbat with few changes.
