How to Make It

Step 1    

In a small saucepan, combine the water with the sugar. Simmer over moderate heat until the sugar has dissolved, about 1 minute. Remove from the heat. Add the 2 mint sprigs, ginger and salt and let stand for 10 minutes.

Step 2    

Strain the syrup into a blender. Add the watermelon and strawberries and puree until smooth.

Step 3    

Fill 8 glasses with ice. Pour the agua fresca into the glasses and top off with sparkling water. Garnish with mint sprigs and serve.

Review Body: Wonderful! I didn't have any ginger root, so I used an equivalent amount of ground ginger instead. No one bothered much with the sparkling water, just enjoyed the drink as is. It was a wonderful non-alcoholic beverage, but when we ran out of watermelon margaritas, we just added some vodka to tour own glass of agua fresca (without the sparkling water) and enjoyed it as an adult beverage. Yummy.
