Watermelon Agua Fresca

I think watermelon is sweet enough on its own so I do not add any extra sweetener.  I also choose not to strain watermelon juice because it blends very well.  However, feel free to strain the liquid.

Makes 6 drinks

Ingredients

1/2 medium watermelon, cubed
1 lime, juiced
6 sprigs of mint

Directions

1. In a vitamix or blender, add the watermelon and lime juice.  Blend until well combined.  Serve over ice with a sprig of mint.

NOTES: Combine cucumber and watermelon agua fresca for a change of pace.  You can also add a splash of seltzer, a splash of vodka for a clean cocktail or both!
