Aguas Frescas in the Summer

Great article in the LA Times on aguas frescas.

I’m a huge fan of agua fresca - blended fruit that’s mixed with sugar and water and strained.

EDIT: Eh, why not.

Watermelon Agua Fresca

2 cups cubed watermelon plus any juices that have seeped out
1 Tbsp simple syrup or 1 tsp agave nectar
1/4-1/2 cup water

Puree the watermelon with the juices. Strain through a medium-meshed strainer to remove the solids. Combine with the sweetener and water and pour over ice. Drink immediately. A quick squeeze of lime juice is optional.
