Watermelon lime frescas

Whoa. These are good. Perfect for spring time…maybe with a little vodka next time 😉 .

Ingredients

1 small watermelon, diced
Zest and juice from one lime
1 pinch salt
1 tsp sugar

Add all ingredients except seltzer water to your blender and blend until smooth. Once blended, strain through a fine mesh strainer to get rid of any seeds or pulp. Refrigerate until needed.

Ice cubes

1 cup water
1 cup granulated sugar
mint leaves
basil leaves

In a small sauce pan, bring all ingredients to boil and simmer for about 12 minutes. Once the mixture thickens slightly, remove from the heat and cool to room temperature. Once cooled, place in ice trays and freeze until solid.

Mint sugared rim

1/2 cup granulated sugar
3-4 mint leaves, minced

Pour your granulated sugar into a shallow bowl and add in your minced mint leaves. Run a slice of lime around the rim of your glass and dip the rim into the sugar to form the sugared rim.

Once your ice cubes are frozen, place a few of them into a cup with your watermelon puree and top with seltzer water.

Enjoy!!
