Okay….so I’ve been away on vacation, but now I’m getting back into the swing of things. I enjoyed lots of sand, sun and family time while away. It is great to unplug and just be with those you love once in a while. With 4th of July fast approaching I wanted to pass along this awsome drink recipe I found in Rachel Ray’s magazine. This drink is fruity, refreshing and filled with summer flavors. I made it this weekend and I thought it was fantastic. One of my friends told me they think watermelon is God’s perfect fruit and I think they might be on to something.
8 c seedless watermelon cubed (this equated to about half of a seedless watermelon for me)
6 T agave nectar (or honey)
1/3 c freshly squeezed lime juice
1 sliced lime
3 sprigs of fresh mint
1 c water
Puree watermelon in a blender and strain in a bowl usine a fine mesh sieve. Stir in honey and lime juice. Transfer to a pitcher and add 1c water, lime slices and mint. Chill and serve over ice. Makes about 6 servings.
