Simple Refreshment

Watermelon Agua Fresca

No need for a complicated recipe to enjoy something homemade this summer, no cooking necessary, just some chopping of any kind of fresh fruit on hand, squeeze of citrus and crushed ice. Feel free to add herbs like we did with a sprig of mint from our quarantine garden. And garnish with a slice of whatever fruit used to make pretty. To spike or not to spike with our favorite rum or intoxicant is the only difficult part of making this drink.
