This recipe for mojito melon on a skewer is a perfect snack for a cocktail party on a hot summer day. Refreshing, tasty really delicious.
At this moment the author of the sis.boom. (blog!) made her top 10 of recipes who did get the least attention on her blog. She thought they deserved some more. And that's were I found this recipe. Frozen Mojito-Melon skewers. Perfect, unique and really tasteful. And at the right moment. What else can I wish for.
A recipe with melons
As it seems for melons. Normally there are plenty of melons at the grocery stores. And now? Not one.
After three stores I got only two of them, but that was enough for me.
This recipe is an adaptation from the book "on a stick" by Matt Armendariz. Sis.bloom. thought it was the perfect skewer to bring to a BBQ.
Perfect party recipe
I know that it's also a perfect skewer to bring to a new years eve party. I didn't freeze the mojito-skewers as was written in the recipe of sis.bloom, because it's already freezing outside (ahem), but it is cold.
My husband thought it was a pity to throw away the marinade afterward. I offered him to drink it, but he refused, so eventually after two batches of melon, I threw the marinade away.
