Watermelon Water

Watermelon Water by MexFoodJournal

Enjoy this watermelon agua fresca anytime you want a cool refreshing drink. Agua fresca translates as “fresh Water.” In Spanish this drink would be called agua de sandia, or you guessed it, “watermelon water.” Any time you see a drink is called “agua de…” it is a type of agua fresca. “Agua de piña” (pineapple), “agua de pepino” (cucumber), “agua de melon” (cantaloupe). You get the idea :)


  • ⅛ medium watermelon. To portion the watermelon, cut it in half lengthwise and then cut one of the quarters in half. Use 1 of the small pieces to prepare this drink.
  • 1 cup sugar
  • ½ gallon water
  • 8 mint or spearmint leaves
8 glasses


Cut the watermelon into chunks and remove all the seeds.

Place the cut-up watermelon in the blender with 2 cups water and blend until smooth. (about 30 seconds)

Pour the blended watermelon into a ½ gallon pitcher and add the cup of sugar.

Stir vigorously until the sugar has dissolved.
Serve lightly chilled or over ice.

Garnish each glass with a mint leaf.
