saw this recipe here, and knew it would be a summer favorite. it must be said also, that it was indeed lovely with a touch of vodka. the lime juice is a surprisingly perfect addition. it may forever change the way I eat watermelon. ...the lime, that is...not the vodka.
watermelon mint agua fresca
4 c. diced, ripe watermelon (sans rind, natch)
3-4 c. water
juice of 2 limes
1 c. simple syrup (if even necessary this time of year)
handful of fresh mint leaves
serve immediately over ice and garnish with a sprig of mint.
