Elderflower & Watermelon Mojito

Elderflower & Watermelon Mojito

Our version of a deliciously refreshing Mojito is made more summery and more 'Ashbolt' with added elderflower and watermelon. Switch out the white rum for gin if you'd prefer, or leave out the alcohol altogether as a drink for the whole family to share.

Serves 8


  • 1.5 kg watermelon, peeled and chopped
  • 2 fresh limes, sliced
  • 200ml Ashbolt Elderflower Concentrate
  • 200ml of good white rum (adjust to suit)
  • 500ml chilled soda water
  • 80ml fresh lime juice
  • Fresh mint, small bunch of sprigs
  • Extra caster sugar (about a tbsp)
  • 2 tsp finely grated lime zest
  • Extra lime juice in a bowl for dipping
  • Ice cubes to serve


  • Blend watermelon in a blender until smooth
  • Place lime slices in a jug and slightly crush to release juice
  • Add watermelon, elderflower concentrate, rum, soda water, and lime juice and stir to combine


  • Combine lime zest and sugar on a small plate
  • Pour extra lime juice into a flat bowl
  • Dip the rim of the glasses into the juice, then into the sugar mixture
  • Add ice to glass
  • Pour watermelon and elderflower mix into the glasses
  • Decorate with extra watermelon and mint sprigs
  • Serve immediately

  • Cool ingredients prior to preparing (ie keep in fridge/esky until ready to mix)
  • Switch watermelon out for other berries if desired – strawberries and mixed berries work well here
  • Can also switch out rum for prosecco/sparkling wine. Elderflower is a very ‘friendly’ mixer!
