  • 5 cups (650 g) cubed honeydew melon
  • ¾ cup (180 ml) fresh lime juice

INSTRUCTIONS

Stir together 2 tablespoons (25 grams) of Redpath® Granulated Sugar and salt on a small plate.

Run a wedge of lime around the rim of each glass, then dip the rim in the sugar mixture to coat.

Add the ⅓ cup (66 grams) of Redpath® Granulated Sugar, the melon, lime juice, rum, and mint leaves to a blender. Blend on high speed until sugar is dissolved. Add the ice and blend until smooth; should take about 2 minutes.

Divide evenly among prepared glasses.

CHEF'S TIP

  • If any mojito mixture is left over, freeze in popsicle molds for a frozen treat
  • To make a non-alcoholic version, simply eliminate the rum
  • Try substituting tequila for the rum!
