Agua de Melón – Mexican Melon Juice Drink

March 24, 2012

This is a short one, nice and easy and very refreshing! I would like to pretend I am making this at a tropical beach front, relaxing in the sun and heat. But instead I am in England, even worse I am in Walsall! on a mild spring day, oh well, I can dream of tropical beaches…

The recipe can be adapted to use almost any fruit you like, so play around with the Fruits you use and the amounts of Sugar/Water will change obviously depending on the sweetness/tartness of the fruit in question.

– Recipe –

1 Canteloupe Melon // 2-4 cups of Water // 1/2 a cup of Piloncillo or Brown Sugar // Juice of one Lemon

  1. Cut the Melon in half, scrape, cut, chop or do what you like to get the flesh off of the rind.
  2. Put all of the Melon except the rind (including the seeds!) into a blender and add 2 cups of Water to the mix.
  3. Blend the Melon thoroughly so the seeds are completely broken up, blend in the Piloncillo or Brown Sugar and the Lemon Juice.
  4. Strain the mix, add more Water if needed, add lots of Ice and then serve chilled.

Enjoy!
