Improv Cooking Challenge: Watermelon-Mint Agua Fresca

Welcome to June's Improv Cooking Challenge hosted by Lesa of Edesia's Notebook. The idea: we are assigned two ingredients and are challenged to create a recipe with those two things. June's chosen ingredients: Mint and Melon.

I raided the Enthusiastic Kitchen Elf's mint pot and already had a mini watermelon.

Watermelon-Mint Agua Fresca

  • 1 mini seedless watermelon, cubed
  • 1/2 C water
  • 2 T ginger syrup or honey
  • juice of 2 organic Meyer lemons, to taste (you can use lime, but we have a lemon tree)
  • 2 T fresh mint, chopped
  •  2 T fresh basil, chopped + more for garnish

In a blender, puree together all of the ingredients. Pour into glasses and garnish with small basil leaves and mint leaves.
