When we were living in Mexico, I got virtually addicted to the liquados (freshly-made fruit juices) they served. My favorite was watermelon (without the seeds) in a blender, and whirling it until pulverized, then adding a squeeze of lime juice, and some water (usually lightly carbonated mineral water). No salt or sugar (I watched ;-), but it was the best, most refreshing drink imaginable. I remember one night, we sat in a little restaurant in the plaza of some little town, and (to the everlasting amazement of our waiter), I drank FIVE beer-scooner-sized glasses of the stuff.
I've always thought this would also be good as an ice (either made in one of those little crank-style freezers you can keep in the refrigerator, or poured into a freezer tray and stirred occasionally. Never quite got around to trying to do that one, though. Maybe this summer.
