Watermelon Agua Fresca

Watermelon Agua FrescaAfter a very hot day on Tuesday, Nevin wanted to make me a refreshing beverage because he’s cute like that. We had some left over watermelon, so he ended up making this delightful drink. Familiar with my dangerous love of mojitos, he incorporated the Mexican flavors of lime and mint to this agua fresca. We didn’t add any alcohol this time, but will definitely make a cocktail version of these next time we entertain! Let us know what you think- how does this rank in your list of best summer drinks?

    Sounds wonderfully refreshing, Panda!! However, I am actually not a big lover of watermelon- what do you or Nevin suggest as an alternative?

    Love, Mom

      Chef Nevin recommends any type of melon- honeydew, cantaloupe or even strawberry! I think cucumber or pineapple would be tasty. If I did a honeydew or cantaloupe I would probably swap out the mint for basil as I think basil and honeydew or cantaloupe go really well together.
