Agua de Sandía – Mexican Watermelon Juice Drink

June 3, 2012

I really love making my own juice, it’s refreshing and simple although I find I am a bit hard pressed to feel comfortable calling something this easy a recipe, It is pretty much fool proof. I have already done Agua de Melón out of Cantaloupe and this is just a slight adjustment of that recipe to account for the blander flavour of Watermelon. If I had used the same levels of Sugar and Lemon/Lime as with Cantaloupe a lot of the Watermelon flavour would be lost in the mix.

– Recipe –

1/2 a Watermelon // 3 cups of Water // 1/3 of a cup of Piloncillo or Brown Sugar // 1/4 of a Lime or Lemon

  1. Use a large spoon to 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 half lime/lemon.
  4. Strain the mix, add more Water if needed, add lots of Ice and then serve chilled.

    Enjoy!
