So maybe this isn’t the best brunch if it’s all you have, but it’s certainly a heavenly addition to a poolside or beachside brunch!

I have a complete addiction to watermelons in the summer. it’s like my ice cream I think. I always get excited about the moment I’m about to cut open a fresh beautiful watermelon. The anticipation waiting to see the bright pink flesh and the perfect crispness gets me every time!!

I love Mojitos and Margaritas and truthfully couldn’t decide between the two recipes when I thought of this for todays brunch post. But at the cottage we have beautiful Mojito mint planted so that tipped the scales!!

If you don’t want the spiciness, then feel free to omit the jalapeno! The flavour will still be amazing without it….but I say live a little and get spicy!!

I hope you have a Perfect Sunny Sunday!!
