Watermelon Agua Fresca


A cool and refreshing drink, perfect for summer.


  • 4 generous cups of cubed watermelon (seeded, if not using a seedless watermelon)
  • 1 1/2 cups cold water
  • Juice of 2 limes
  • Mint sprigs
  • Honey, agave, or simple syrup*


  1. Place watermelon and water in a blender and blend for about 30 seconds. Strain through a fine-mesh strainer.
  2. Add lime juice and sweeten to taste with honey, agave, or simple syrup.
  3. Serve over ice with mint sprigs.


  • Important Note: I use simple syrup made of 1 cup water mixed with 1 cup sugar. If desired, you can add a small handful of mint leaves or a halved jalapeño. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally, then allow to cool and remove any solids.
