Watermelon, Lime, and Mint Agua Fresca

Nothing says summer quite like watermelon. The Mr. and I have been eating our weight in watermelon lately - since it's just the two of us it takes a bit of effort to consume an entire watermelon on our own. Usually we just munch on cubed watermelon that I keep in the fridge, but lately I've been trying it in some new recipes - a watermelon, mint and feta salad and today a watermelon, lime, and mint agua fresca! I've been seeing a lot of watermelon drinks on Feastie lately and when I opened the fridge and saw the mint and watermelon staring back at me, I decided to toss some stuff in a blender and see what would happen. SO GOOD. And with the 100+ degree heat, it's such a refreshing, light summery drink that feels a bit like a treat. I made one for The Mr. Saturday afternoon after he'd been working in the (sweltering) garage - he slurped it up in seconds. I also have a sneaking suspicion that if some tequila found its way into this drink it wouldn't be too horrible, either. Watermelon margarita, perhaps?
