agua de sandía

When you live in a place where there is not that many falling leaves for fall and no snow for winter you look at seasons by the fruit or vegetables available to eat, at least I do. So for the last few weeks I have been eating a lot of watermelon.

Aguas frescas, basically fruit sugar and water made into a drink are a good thing to do when you have some fruit leftovers. Now this is not really a recipe per se but more of a reminder that watermelon is in season and is hot outside so you should buy some and make some good agua de sandia (watermelon water).

Ingredients:

– 2 cups of chopped watermelon (seeds removed if any)

– 4 cups of water

– 1/2 cup of sugar (you could use less or more depending on how sweet the watermelon is)

– Juice of one big lime or 2 small ones

Mix all ingredients in a blender and drink, if your watermelon is cold mix water and sugar first then add the fruit.

Add ice and enjoy!
