Your Weekend Cocktail - Virgin Edition

Since I seem to have come down with a cold, I'll be on the wagon this weekend.  I'm hoping the citrus + spiciness of this drink will deliver the perfect one-two punch to the sniffles and sneezes.  But you?  You should pour some vodka in this and have one for me.

Yellow Nectarine, Blood Orange, Mint, and Serrano Chili Agua Fresca (for 6)

8 yellow nectarines, sliced
2 blood oranges, peeled and sliced
10 mint leaves
1 serrano chili, split and deseeded
1 lime, juiced
3 tablespoons agave nectar
Water (to taste)

In a blender, combine the nectarines, oranges, mint, and chili. Puree until completely smooth (adding water if you need it to blend). Strain it and add lime juice and agave to taste. Serve in a pitcher with sliced serrano and orange, and a few sprigs of mint. Enjoy!
