Agua Fresca de Sandia (Fresh Watermelon Drink)

Ingredients
8 cups loosely-packed seeded watermelon chunks
1/4 cup packed fresh mint leaves
12 ounces sparkling water
Sugar
Ice cubes
Mint sprigs (for garnish)

* Also great using mangos or blood oranges instead of watermelon.

Directions
– To process easily, divide the watermelon into 2-cup portions. Add the mint leaves to one portion.
– Using a blender, puree each portion of the watermelon returning the puree to a large pitcher.
– Once all four batches of puree have been added, stir in the sparkling water.
– Depending on the sweetness of the watermelon, sugar may be needed to sweeten the drink. Just add one tablespoon of sugar at a time, stirring well until you reach the desired sweetness.
– Chill for 1 hour. Serve over ice with a mint sprig for garnish.
