Watermelon Agua Fresca
Ingredients
1
6 pound seedless watermelon
2
cups cold water
2
tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice
2
tablespoons honey
 
Ice cubes
 
Lime wedges
 
Watermelon slices
 
Additional honey (optional)
Directions
  1. Cut the rind from the 6- to 8-pound watermelon and discard. Cut the flesh into 2-inch cubes (you should have about 13 cups).
  2. In a blender combine about one-third of the watermelon cubes and one-third of the water. Cover and blend until smooth. Strain through a fine-mesh sieve into a pitcher or large glass jar. Discard solids. Repeat twice, using remaining watermelon and remaining water.
  3. Stir lime juice and the 2 tablespoons honey into strained watermelon mixture. Serve immediately or chill until ready to serve.
  4. Serve in ice-filled glasses. Garnish with lime wedges and watermelon slices; serve with additional honey, if desired.
