Watermelon Agua Fresca

Total Time:
25 mins


  • 1 6-8 pound seedless watermelon

  • 2 cup cold water

  • 2 tablespoon freshly squeezed lime juice

  • 2 tablespoon honey

  • Ice cubes

  • Lime wedges

  • Watermelon slices

  • Additional honey (optional)


  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.
