Refreshing Watermelon Mint Cooler

I'm always a little sad at the end of summer, because it seems like once September comes, the remainder of the year just flies by. The one good thing about summer ending, however, is that watermelon is on sale everywhere. So, I decided to load up and make this refreshing Watermelon Mint Cooler. This drink isn't quite a traditional agua fresca, which is more water then fruit, and it isn't quite a juice as it uses the whole fruit. Believe me when I tell you it's oh so delicious and refreshing, though! Watermelon is already perfectly sweet in my opinion, so I used less water, so that you can still taste the whole fruit and added dates for just a hint more sweetness. I then balanced out the sweetness and added a little zing with a hint of lemon and mint. You can make this with any fruit. So, if you don't have watermelon, feel free to experiment and try it with and without the dates! Also try making this with seltzer water for a little bubbly sparkle!

I always love hearing from my readers and clients, so feel free to leave a comment and let me know your thoughts! Enjoy! #cheerstosummer #pleasedontgogirl
