Today we have another birthday celebration! Sam’s turning another year older!
Happy Birthday Sam!!!
Sometimes our book club turns into a wine club. Everyone brings a bottle of wine, and it’s fun to taste-test and find one that each of us enjoys! But within the next year, our book club will be getting two new members- 2 babies! Since all of us need a fun drink, I decided to make something tasty and non-alcoholic for the mamas-to-be!
This is also great if you mix it with a little champagne, prosecco or white wine. It can be a great drink with dinner, or something you can enjoy for an outdoor lunch!
Cantaloupe Agua Fresca
Adapted from: Bon Appetit (June 2012)
3/4 cup lemon juice
4 cups of water
1/2 cup basil leaves
Peel and chop the cantaloupes, removing the seeds. Then purée them in a food processor or a blender. Strain the purée into a bowl through a cheesecloth or fine-mesh sieve. Then add in the lemon juice, water and basil; stir well.
Pour into a pitcher and refrigerate before serving.
