watermelon agua fresca recipe – here’s a refreshing and cooling mexican drink for summers – watermelon agua fresca.

watermelon agua fresca

its so refreshing and cooling that you can include this drink in your summer diet. the temperatures are soaring here. march had been pretty hot, wonder what april & may has in store .

this drink has a different consistency & taste than our regular indian watermelon juice. in this mexican drink, the watermelon juice is strained & extracted from the pulp. unlike the watermelon juice we make here where the juice has the pulp too.

watermelon agua fresca recipe

to make this mexican drink a little spiced, i added some ginger to it. this is totally optional and you can make the watermelon agua fresca without ginger.

hints of lemon, ginger in this watermelon agua fresca makes this a refreshing drink for the summers.

i used 1/2 of a large watermelon and it yielded me approx 5 glasses of juice. the aqua fresca is easy to prepare. you can serve it chilled with ice cubes. or you can chill in the fridge and then serve this drink.
