On Saturday, you’ll get to add yet another amazing WordCamp Portland pint glass to your collections of awesome, thirst-fighting hardware. Even if you’re not (gasp! cough!) a beer drinker, this little baby holds iced tea, kombucha, and delicious Portland tap water like a champ. Here’s a recipe for a summer cooler that will be something the whole family will enjoy sipping out of a WordCamp pint glass:
Watermelon Mint Agua Fresca*
4 cups fresh watermelon (preferably Hermiston), peeled, seeded and chopped into 2-inch chunks
a handful of fresh mint leaves, minced
1 cup delicious Portland tap water (or any potable water you have available)
1 oz. fresh lime or lemon juice
1 Tbsp. granulated sugar
Tools: blender, chinois strainer (or cheesecloth-lined colander), pitcher, large spoon Puree the watermelon, mint and water. Strain into a pitcher and add the lime juice and sugar. Stir and serve over ice.
*Doesn’t it look like a WordPress valentine-in-a-glass?
