Watermelon & Mint Aguas Frescas
This is a refreshing summery drink. It can be prepared a few hours before serving, but do not add the ice until the last minute. Substitute rock melon or honeydew melon for the watermelon for a different flavour direction.
- 1 kg watermelon chopped, 2 1/4 pounds
- 5 sprigs mint
- 1 cup cold water
- Juice of 1 lime
- slices Ice lime and mint leaves to serve
Juice the watermelon and mint in a juicer.
Stir in the water and lime juice.
Cool until required.
Serve over ice with slices of lime.
Garnish with extra mint leaves.
If you do not own a juicer, blend all the ingredients together in a food processor or blender and strain.
You can add additional sugar or other sweetner to the mix if your fruit was not sweet enough to start with.
