Watermelon Agua Fresca


Serves 4-6

You’ll Need

  • 6-8 cups cubed watermelon
  • 1 cup cold water
  • 4 Tbsp. sugar (or sweetener of choice)
  • ¼ cup lime juice
  • Sparkling water
  • Optional: lime wedges and mint leaves

Prep and Cook

  • Place the watermelon pieces in a blender or food processor and blend until completely liquefied. Pass the fruit juice through a fine mesh sieve set over a large bowl to remove the pulp from the liquid. Pour into a large pitcher.
  • Add the water, sugar and lime juice and stir to combine. Refrigerate until well chilled, 4 hours or overnight.
  • To serve, pour watermelon agua fresca into ice-filled glasses and top with sparkling water. Garnish with lime slices or mint leaves, if desired.
