Watermelon agua fresca

 
Cool off this Cinco de Mayo with a beverage that’s super popular in Mexico as well as Central America and the Caribbean. Agua fresca (or water refreshments) is a traditional sip that’s typically made with fruits found locally. Now that watermelon has hit farmer’s markets and grocery stores, we can’t wait to try this riff on a classic recipe.

 

Ingredients:

1 cup finely cut watermelon

7 cups coarsely chopped watermelon

6 cups watermelon juice

1/2 cup sugar

1 large lime, juiced

 

Directions:

Combine all ingredients in a large serving pitcher and stir to mix well. Garnish with watermelon wedges and mint and serve over ice in tumblers, mason jars or margarita glasses for a festive effect.
