Watermelon Agua Fresca

Ben Fink

Servings: Yields 3 cups.

A refreshing agua fresca is a popular drink in Mexico and all over Latin America. Agua frescas are basically fresh ripe fruit juices, sweetened and served over or blended with ice. An interesting variation is to freeze a fruity white wine and then crush it and substitute it for the crushed ice. Make two batches of this recipe to serve six people.

Ingredients

  • 4 cups coarsely chopped seedless watermelon flesh
  • Juice of 1 medium fresh lime
  • 1 cup crushed ice or 1-1/4 cups ice cubes
  • 1 Tbs. superfine sugar (or to taste)
  • Orange slices and mint sprigs for garnish
