Watermelon Agua Fresca



Today we are hosting a backyard barbecue where we will be serving this watermelon agua fresca. Watermelon beverages epitomize summer so we tend to try a new watermelon-based recipe every year. This drink is light and refreshing and as simple as pureeing watermelon with some water and agave, and pouring over glasses filled with ice cubes (or, as we prefer, watermelon ice cubes.) Happy 4th of July!

Watermelon Agua Fresca
Serves about 6

10 cups fresh watermelon cubes
3 cups water
1/4 cup agave syrup
watermelon ice cubes (see how to make them here)
approx. 30 mint leaves

Puree the watermelon cubes with the water and agave syrup until very smooth. Coarsely crush the mint leaves at the bottom of a serving pitcher. Pour the agua fresca over the crushed mint leaves and stir well. To serve, fill a serving glass with watermelon ice cubes and top off the with agua fresca. Garnish with additional mint leaves.
