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.
