Agua Fresca

While we were in Maine we were introduced to Agua Fresca i.e. fresh waters. It was one of the most refreshing drinks I have ever had. When we got home I had to find a similar recipe so we could make it ourselves for these hot Philly days. Here is my revised version of a recipe I found in the Everyday with Rachael Ray magazine:

4 cups watermelon cubes
3 tbsp honey or agave nectar
3 tbs lime juice
a few sprigs of mint

Puree watermelon in blender. Strain into bowl trough strainer. Stir in honey and lime juice. Transfer to pitcher; stir in 3/4 cups water ad mint. Chill and serve over ice.

All of the ingredients.

Straining the pureed watermelon over the bowl.

Adding the lime juice and honey.

Pouring the mixture into a pitcher and adding water.

Over ice and ready to drink...yum!
