Melon Agua Fresca

This Mexican-style fruit drink is typically made with water and a blend of different whole fruits. Here we've skipped the water and opted for an all-fruit version that is a perfect thirst quencher for a hot summer day. In order to get the amount of watermelon needed for this recipe, you need to purchase about a 3-pound watermelon.
