Watermelon Agua Fresca

Aqua Fresca is so refreshing and a favorite in our house this time of year. With the humidity we have been having, we have stepped up our liquids intake. One of our favorite drinks to make is a cold and refreshing Aqua Fresca, which translates to “Cool Water” in Spanish.

My grandmother used to make these when I was little. We often buy this drink at festivals and sporting events, because it really quenches your thirst when you have been out in the sun. These drinks are very popular in Mexico and are made in many different flavors. It is also so incredibly easy to make. The most time-consuming part is cutting up the watermelon to make the watermelon juice.

You do need a blender or juicer to make the watermelon juice, but it is so good and takes only seconds to make. It is best if your watermelon has been chilled for an hour, but it is not necessary.

  1. I was just wondering what I was going to do with the leftover watermelon in the fridge! This sounds perfect for a hot, summer day.

  2. Oh, that looks so refreshing!

  3. That looks sooo good. I love watermelon but I’ve never had it in drink form, if you can believe that. I think it’s time to change that. Love the bit of lime.

  4. Oh wow this sounds so good and so nice when you can carry on a tradition.
