Summer is coming to a close, but while the sun is still shining bright and the days are long why not take advantage - ocean dips, bike rides, and delicious refreshments.
This one really hits the spot on a hot day, and is a cinch to make.
Watermelon Mint Agua Fresca Recipe
I used one full small watermelon, which was roughly four cups.
Put the watermelon in a blender, and add 1/2 cup cold water and the juice of one lime.
Puree until smooth.
Muddle a handful of fresh mint leaves and 2 tbsp sugar in the bottom of a pitcher, pour in the pureed watermelon mix, and stir to dissolve sugar.
You can also add a few slices of cucumber to the pitcher for added flavour.
Serve in glasses over ice, and store pitcher in the fridge.
Enjoy the last days of summer!
