Watermelon Cucumber Elixir, from Cool Refreshing Drinks
Nothing screams “summertime” more than a luscious hunk of hot-pink watermelon.
“It’s delicate sweetness marries perfectly with the mild flavors of cucumber for a light, mineral-packed drink,” says Nathan Brown, Beverage Manager at The Park Hyatt Aviara Resort in San Diego. (The tasty seeds are packed with essential proteins and make crunchy garnishes atop any salad.)
15 cubed watermelon squares (seeds removed and toasted for garnish on a salad)
3 ¼” cucumber rounds (peeled with skin off)
1/2 ounce organic Agave Nectar
Combine ingredients in the blender on low for 30 seconds. “Refrigerate until you’re ready to serve, stir and garnish with a cucumber slice,” says Brown.
