Agua Fresca

Agua frescas (Spanish: water refreshments) are popular in Mexico, Central America and the Caribbean and are made from fruits blended with sugar and water to make a non-alcoholic beverage. Due to the natural sweetness of watermelon, minimal amount of additional sugar is required. Try substituting with Splenda or the like for a calorie cut!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup finely chopped watermelon
  • 7 cups coarsely chopped watermelon
  • 6 cups watermelon juice
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 large lime, juiced
  • 1 serving of water (if needed)

Instructions

Combine all ingredients in a large serving pitcher. Garnish with watermelon wedges and mint.
