Agua Fresca II

We wised up for Agua Fresca, Part Deux.

Instead of running all the melon through the food processor and pushing it through a sieve, I used the juicer. Worked wonders! Then, I added a good squeeze of lime and some fresh mint. The three flavors combined for an icy-cool refreshment on a 100-plus-degree day.

Ryan's dad introduced us to the watermelon-mint-lime salad (cube watermelon, then add fresh mint and lime, marinate for 2-3 hours in the fridge and serve at a summer picnic) and the same idea works just as well as a beverage. Could make a pretty good margarita, too--just add some tequila and Triple Sec.

Everyone together now... Ahhhhhhhhhhh.
