Since watermelon is mostly water, it makes a perfectly refreshing summer drink. This is an excellent thing to make when you have half a watermelon left over and no room in the refrigerator, or double the recipe and use the whole watermelon. It’s a great alternative to soda for kids’ parties.
1⁄2 of a 6–7 pound watermelon
1 cup water
1 tablespoon of agave syrup or simple sugar syrup, to taste
Pinch of salt
Juice of half a lime, optional
Remove the rind and seeds from the watermelon and cut into rough chunks. Place in a blender with the water, syrup, salt and blend until liquefied. Taste and add additional syrup and/or lime to taste. Strain through a coarse strainer, chill and serve.
