Watermelon auga fresca ~ a letter to summer



Dear summer,

I feel you knocking on my door. Your sun will shine through the May gray soon I know. And because there are reasons to celebrate this weekend I suggest adding tequila to this sweet and refreshing drink :)

Please don't be long summer, were waiting.

Watermelon Agua Fresca
Serves 6 | From earth to Table

1 large seedless watermelon (about 8lbs), peeled and cut into chunks
1 cup freshly squeezed lime juice (about 10 limes)
1 cup local honey
1 1/2 inch piece of ginger root, grated finely
Ice cubes
Lime slices and mint for garnish
Tequila optional

In a blender or food processor, working in batches, process watermelon until smooth. Pour through a strainer (i used cheese cloth) into a large pitcher. You should have about 8 cups of juice. Stir in lime juice, honey, and ginger. Pour into ice-filled glasses and garnish with lime slices and mint.




xoxo

I'm not a huge watermelon fan but I love fresh watermelon juice and this recipe sounds amazingly good. Hope you had a fab holiday.
