Fall Watermelon Agua Fresca

The beginning of Fall in California is confusing.
There a days when there is a slight crisp chill in the air and the next day it's 88 degrees.
We still have tons of Summer fruit and vegetables in the stores.
For instance today,  
I grabbed a pumpkin along with a watermelon.
We are gearing up for warm week ahead, 
so I decided to put a twist on the classic Agua Fresca...

because you've got to stay hydrated in the Autumn too, right?

I keep my Agua Fresca simple with just 
watermelon, lime, water, sugar and salt...

and as it chills in the refrigerator, 
I grab a handful of mint...

then "Autumn-ize" them.

A quick cut with a clean paper punch...

and you have an instant Fall drink garnish!

Fall Watermelon Agua Fresca, 
it was "mint" to be...

Fall Watermelon Agua Fresca
makes about 6 glasses

4 cups cubed watermelon
2 cups of cold water
juice of one lime (about 1/4 cup)
2 teaspoons lime zest
1 Tablespoon course salt

Combine all ingredients in blender until smooth and chill at least 2 hours in refrigerator.  Serve on ice and top with Fall mint leaves and enjoy.
