I made a Mexican feast last night, and wanted a vaguely 'Mexicany' non-alcoholic beverage to go with it.
I've never whizzed up a watermelon before-not much fibre in those suckers-you get a lot of juice

food-process peeled chunks of watermelon and tip each batch into a largish container.
Add a bit of grated ginger root, plenty of lime/lemon juice,
a small pinch of salt-it sounds a bit weird, but trust me: salt really works-
and a few drops of orange blossom water if you've got it lying around.
(I love this stuff, but by drops, I mean drops-too much and it'll taste like toilet freshener or something)

Check the flavours are balanced, tip it all through a sieve and chill well.
It'll separate, so give it a good mix before serving.

I have a strong feeling that various spirits would go well in this,
or maybe have a glass after a shot of mescal...

It's a beautiful day in this neighborhood - Fred Rogers. Tiny ad:
