Afternoon delight: agua fresca de sandía

Here’s a step-by-step process for making agua fresca de sandía (aka, watermelon juice). Buy personal watermelon at HEB or other reputable grocery store. Take watermelon home. Cut in half. Submit to the unmerciful powers of the Breville Juice Fountain Elite (you may also use a blender and a fine mesh sieve, although this is technically considered a less “ruthless” way to make juice). Pour over ice. Add a squeeze of lime juice. Enjoy a refreshing cup of afternoon delight.

  2. Just came across this – I accidently made watermelon juice when I had leftover from making watermelon sorbet – I poured the rest in a glass – it’s AMAZING. Next time I’ll try the lime, but I have to tell you, you can’t go wrong with a little vodka in it, either…
