I know it's September and summer is gone, but we recently had a heat wave.  We took this opportunity to have one more taste of summer and started with an Agua Fresca recipe, but ditched it last minute.  Instead we made Watermelonade!  In short, we cubed a ton of watermelon, stuck it in the blender, added some sugar, and chilled it.  We originally tried to strain it, but it wasn't straining very well.  All the better, I love when my fruit juice is pulpy/meaty!

Approximately 4-5 cups of watermelon (seeded and cubed)  We used a seedless watermelon to make this step easier
1-2 cups of water, as required to help the watermelon blend
Sugar to taste
Mint leaves for garnish

  1. Fill a blender with cubed watermelon.  Add a little water to help the watermelon blend.  We used less water so that we could get a stronger watermelon flavor.
  2. (Optional) Filter the watermelonade using a strainer.  The unfiltered drink has a thicker consistency.
  3. Add sugar.  We used 1 tablespoon of sugar for every cup of watermelonade.  The sweeter the watermelon, the less sugar you need to add!
  4. Serve chilled, with a sprig of mint to garnish
