The last few days had been scorching hot in the bay area. For a hot summer what better thirst quencher than some freshly made watermelon juice. Add some lime juice and fresh mint to it and you will get a heavenly drink. Agua Fresca are non-coholic, Mexican blended beverages made with a variety of fruits and other ingredients. I first came across this in the menu of the Mexican place that we frequent and was curious to know what it was. Once I tried it, I knew this is something I can make at home.
4cups of seedless watermelon cubed
1/2 cup water
Sugar/honey to taste
2-3 tbsp of fresh lime juice
15 mint leaves
Puree the watermelon and water in a blender until smooth. Add sugar to taste. Add mint leaves and lemon juice and pulse the blender once more.Seive this to remove the pulp.Pour this into seving glass and fill each glass with ice and stir before serving.
