Watermelon cucumber agua fresca

IMG_5157

Dudes, it is HOT in the district.  Hottest place in the country this past week, apparently.

Time to cool out, for real.  In your heat-induced languor, this is still easy to put together.  Your taste buds will thank you.

Click to listen: Carlos Vives – “Fruta Fresca”

Ingredients

  • 4 cups watermelon
  • 1/4 or 1/2 of a cucumber (I recommend peeling it, for the sake of both color and flavor)
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1/2 cup water
  • Sugar to taste (optional; I added a few drops of stevia)

Instructions

  1. Put it in a blender.
  2. Pour into a glass (or pitcher, and add rum/vodka/etc., if it’s that kind of party).
  3. Garnish with mint leaves, lime wedge, or cucumber slice.  If you’re fancy.
