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.

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.
