My family is a beverage family. We love beverages. Our house is always stocked with the following: water, soda, apple juice, wine, coffee, tea, and vitamin water. We really love our beverages. My husband won’t even continue eating his meal at a restaurant if his glass is empty. We will put down his silverware and wait for a refill before he eats again – he says he “needs a drink in order to eat.” We’re serious about our liquids. So now that the temps are warming up we always talk about Sandia. It’s a summer time fav here. Sandia is Spanish for Watermelon. We love Sandia Agua Fresca. It is so refreshing and simple to make, here’s how:
Yeild: 8-10 Cups
1 mini watermelon, cubed
Juice of 1 lime
Sugar to taste (1-4 teaspoons)
Water to taste (1/4-1 cup)
Thoroughly mix all ingredients in blender.
Strain through a fine mesh sifter or cheese cloth.
After you blend the ingredients the mixture is thick, strain it to get a pulp free drink:
This is a drink the whole family will love. It is great for parties and anytime you enjoy Mexican food. You can even make it an adult beverage by adding vodka or rum.*
What’s your favorite summer drink?
