Strawberry and Cantaloupe Agua Fresca with Thyme

[Photographs: Autumn Giles]

The result of blending strawberries and cantaloupe with a quick thyme simple syrup is a surprisingly complex and really refreshing alcohol-free drink. I opted not to strain this version of agua fresca because it blends up very smooth, but it's up to you if you want to strain the final result. Serve as-is for a concentrated, fruity drink or lighten it up by cutting it with a bit of sparkling water.
