Stepwise Procedure to make refreshing Watermelon Mojito Mocktail:

2. Take the mint in a mortar and crush it with pestle. The flavour and aroma of the mint will come out well. Leave few leaves for garnishing.
3. Now we will start putting the ingredients together to make Watermelon Mojito. Put the crushed mint leaves, lots of ice cubes and 2 lemon slices each in 2 glasses.
4. Now we will start pouring in the watermelon juice in the glass prepared in step #3. We will fill half the glass with watermelon juice and the later half with soda water. Then add the Simple Syrup as per your taste and desired sweetness level. I have added 4 table Spoon syrup in each glass here. Stir it well.
5. We can garnish the watermelon mojito with few mint leaves. Our watermelon mojito is ready to be served.

Important Points to be noted in this Watermelon Mojito Mocktail Recipe:
- Watermelon should be seedless before blending. If you strain it after blending, the pulp might also get strained.
- Blend it well so that there are no big chunks left. Everything should be small enough to pass through a straw.
- Add the soda just before serving. Else you will lose the fizz.
- You can use cold pressed watermelon juice if you want to retain maximum possible nutrients.
- If you don’t have brown sugar, you may use regular white sugar.
- You may use sprite/7up instead of soda, but then don’t add Simple Syrup as it might turn too sweet.
