watermelon aqua fresca

The Lime Truck’s fresh limeades and agua frescas inspired us to make our own watermelon agua fresca.  Agua fresca is a Mexican drink that is essentially fruit infused water.  It’s light, refreshing and delicious.  It’s easy to make and the best part is that it requires few ingredients. You can substitute with other fruits as well such as strawberries, cantaloupe – really any fruit that you can puree.  I sweetened the drink with agave nectar, but if you prefer  you can use regular sugar as well.  This is fruit infused water so it’s not sugar sweet like a lemonade, but you’re more than welcome to make it as sweet as you like!

I love the contrast of the beautiful pink watermelon and green lime slices. By the way... this is also tasty with a splash of rum... just sayin!

    Refreshing…Waremelon never fails to refresh. And I am talking about whatever form it takes. I can eat it by itself, turn it into shake, juice, purree or even a unique mix like this one, it will still be back to where it all started…refreshingly delicious!
