After 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?
