Spicy Honeydew & Coco Mambo Agua Fresca
For the Chile de Arbol Simple Syrup
✨5 dried Chiles de arbol
✨1 cup water
✨ 1 table spoon #agave sugar
For the Agua Fresca
✨900gr whole honeydew melon, cubed to make about 5 cups
✨1 cup @coconutmambo water
✨1 tablespoon fresh #lime juice ✨ Fresh lemon for garnish
Directions ✨Tear the chiles with your hands and combine them in a small saucepan with water & sugar. Being the boil, stirring frequently, then reduce heat and simmer for 10min. Remove from heat , let cool to room temperature, strain and refrigerate liquid. Syrup keeps for up to 1 week in a sealed container. ✨Put the honeydew in blender and pulse a few times to break down the melon then blend on medium for about 15 more seconds, until a pulpy puree forms. Position a colander lined with a double layer of cheesecloth over a bowl and pour the honeydrew mixture into the colander. Let strain for about 10 min, then pick up the ends of the cheesecloth and sequeeze to extract any remaining juice. ✨Measure 1 1/2 cups of the resulting juice and combine with the @coconutmambo water, chile de arbol syrup and lime juice in a small pitcher. Stir to combine and refrigerate until completely cool. Serve garnished with additional fresh melon if desired.
