Watermellon Agua Fresca

Found this ditty in the RR magazine that somehow arrives at my house each month!

Watermelon Agua Fresca


* 8 cups seedless watermelon cubes * 6 tablespoons honey or agave nectar * 1/3 cup fresh lime juice plus 1 sliced lime * A few sprigs mint or rosemary * Ice


* Puree watermelon in blender. Strain into bowl through fine-mesh sieve. Stir in honey and lime juice. Transfer to pitcher; stir in 1-1/2 cups water, lime slices and mint. Chill; serve over ice. —First issue – i don’t own a sieve… well i do for pottery, but really… not for anything i can put food thru… — How does one pick a watermellon that is only 8 cups worth of fruit?? I ended up with a full pitcher of watermellon “juice”!  ( probably had 12 cups of watermellon, not sure i just kept cutting, blending, and putting it thru a strainer!) I added the lime, lite agave syrup and let it sit for the day! Right before our guests arrived, i split the juice between 2 pitchers, added a cup of water to each and some mint leaves! Then i added 5-7 shots of vodka and mmmmmm! Delicious!
