True Food Kitchen's watermelon mojito.

In honor of National Watermelon Day, celebrated Aug. 3, True Food Kitchen's beverage director Jon Augustin shared a recipe for a watermelon mojito with PhillyVoice.

The summery drink is refreshing and simple to make at home. Plus, it's full of fresh ingredients, an important focus for the restaurant.

Recipe for True Food Kitchen's Watermelon Mojito:

0.75 oz. of lime juice
0.75 oz. of simple syrup
0.5 oz. of pineapple juice
2 ozs. of watermelon juice
4 pieces of mint leaves
1.5 ozs. of lime rum

Combine all ingredients in shaker. Shake vigorously and then add soda. Finish by straining over ice.

To make your own lime rum, add 20 g of lime peel per 750 ml oz of your rum of choice and allow the mixture to infuse for 24 hours.
