Weekend Refreshers

Whether it is the weekend get-together or the more formal wedding reception, baby shower, or birthday party, are you looking for something different than ordinary soda and water beverage options? If so here are two very tasty, quick and easy refreshing summer drink choices. 

WATERMELON & MINT AGUA FRESCA


Ingredients

4C Watermelon, seeded and Cubed (@ 3 pounds)

1/2 C Water

15 Mint Leaves

6-8 T Sugar (Super Fine White)

Lime Wedges

Blend all ingredients (Except the limes) together in blender... Pour and enjoy with a sprig of Mint and Lime wedge 

*This recipe is easy to modify if you don't want mint, if you want it sweeter or with less sugar, or even add a little more water to thin it out. 

Next is another easy and delicious change of pace...

FRESH LIMEADE

3/4 Cup fresh squeezed Lime juice

5C Water

1/2 C Fine Sugar

Bring 1 cup water to a boil in a small saucepan.

Add sugar and stir until dissolved.

Pour syrup into the pitcher, add 4 cups water.

Stir until well blended.

Add more sugar if desired.

Refrigerate 1 hour.

Serve limeade with lime slices.

**Nice change is to use sub the 4 cups of still water with Seltzer water!

Enjoy!
