I was checking about the nutritional facts of watermelon and came to know about an interesting fact. Each bite of watermelon contains about 92% of water!. Isn’t it an amazing fact! It also contains some amount of sugar. So during summer your body needs to be re-hydrated, so drinking water is not enough to replace the electrolytes. Watermelon also contains high amount of Potassium and other vitamins & minerals. So having watermelon during summer can help to maintain your body’s electrolyte balance.
You can prepare watermelon mojito easily and quickly! If you have the ingredients in your pantry, you can serve this chilled drink to your sudden guest as well. It is also a good kitty party or pool party drink during summer. So next time you bring a watermelon home, do not forget to try this watermelon mojito!
