Cool things on hot days. Summertime... We're feeling it in Houston, Texas. Hot. And don't forget humid. The objective these days is to think up all things cooool—like this fizzy watermelon aqua fresca. If you are looking for a way to use your leftover watermelon from your 4th of July celebration, this is it!
I made these a couple of weeks ago for the kids in gardening class, and they loved them! It was an especially fun way to enjoy a seasonal tasting, and relate it to what's actually growing in the garden right now.
Little Baby Flower Watermelon, small enough to trellis if you have limited gardening space.
The "girls" at the school garden enjoy any garden tasting "leftovers," and come running when we've got bits of cucumber or tomato.
The girls show their gratitude by delivering the best, fresh eggs.
Fizzy Watermelon Agua Fresca
Fill up your blender with watermelon chunks, add one cup of cold water, a squidge of honey and the juice from 1/2 a lime. Blend up until smooth. Pour the mixture through a fine strainer, removing any pulp or seeds. When you are ready to serve, pour the watermelon juice into your favorite glass and add sparkling water to your taste. Enjoy!
