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, a minimal
amount of additional sugar is required. Try substituting with honey or Stevia for
a calorie cut!
1 cup finely chopped watermelon
7 cups coarsely chopped watermelon
1/2 cup sugar
1 large lime, juiced
1 serving of water
Combine all ingredients in a large serving pitcher.
Garnish with watermelon wedges
Serving size will vary.
