Watermelon Lime Agua Fresca

I can’t believe it’s already July – where has the year gone?! This summer has been a little cool, but it’s feeling hot and humid to celebrate the 4th of July tomorrow. We’re having a low-key day at home, lots of swimming and hanging out. I plan on making another batch of these drinks – they were so refreshing and so simple to make! I loved the addition of lime and mint. It really enhanced the watermelon and was delicious. If you want to make it adult friendly, add a shot of rum or vodka for a fun summertime cocktail!

Aqua fresca translates to “cool water” and they’re popular in the US and Mexico. They’re a delicious way to enjoy fresh fruit in the summer. I’m planning to experiment and try more flavors this summer. What type of agua fresca would you like to try?

juice of 1 lime
1/3 cup cold water

In a blender, process the watermelon, lime juice and cold water. Strain through a fine mesh sieve to remove any seeds. Fill a glass with ice and pour the aqua fresca over. Garnish with a watermelon chunk, slice of lime and mint spring. Enjoy!
