Watermelon Aqua Fresca

Tina Cornett
Yield 13 cups
A reader describes this as "watermelon-scented water." The flavor doesn't overpower, but refreshes, especially on hot days.

Ingredients

  • 6 cups seeded, cubed watermelon
  • 8 cups water
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup fresh lime juice
  • Garnish: watermelon wedges

How to Make It

  1. Process watermelon in a blender until smooth. Pour mixture into a large bowl; stir in 8 cups water, sugar, and lime juice. Cover and chill at least 8 hours. Stir; serve in tall glasses. Garnish, if desired.
