Icy Spicy Thai Watermelon Mojitos

Chef Mai Pham of Star Ginger Asian Grill and Noodle Bar in Sacramento, CA, shows us how to make a unique, fun and refreshing Icy Spicy Thai Watermelon Mojito. Growing up in Vietnam, Chef Mai fondly remembers neighborhood street vendors selling freshly cut watermelon wedges, ready to be dipped in pounded salt and chilies. This Icy Spicy Mojito is inspired by those flavors: rum, vodka and watermelon work their magic when blended with Asian spices and herbs. Feel free to jazz it up with fun garnishes like a carved, sizeable chunk of watermelon, or even a watermelon satay!
