Watermelon Agua Fresca

“Agua Fresca” is basically just a term for flavored water, and falls in the same category as Horchata.  It’s a great cooling drink served with spicy food, and I think would be a fun twist on the usual watermelon served at a Fourth of July BBQ.
We love it because it’s slightly sweet but incredibly refreshing, so it goes great with grilled food too.


8 cups watermelon chunks (seedless, or make sure there are no seeds in your chunks)
1 cup water
2-4 T honey or sugar (depending on how sweet your melon is)
1/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
1 tsp kosher salt

Puree the watermelon and water, either in a blender, food processor, or a stick blender. (work in batches if necessary).
Push through a fine mesh sieve to get completely smooth.
Mix in the remaining ingredients until well combined.
Serve over ice with lime wedges, if desired.
