I think of picnic’s and I think of Watermelon. Watermelon Agua Fresca is the perfect beverage to take a long with you on a picnic. It’s all of the wonderful Watermelon flavor without all the sticky mess, seeds and bulk. You can’t really beat that.
Not to mention, a Watermelon Agua Fresca can be turned into a cocktail so easily by just adding whatever alcohol you think seems delicious. For the heck of it, we mixed a little with Blue Curacua and light rum to see if it actually tasted good and well, it was amazing – plus really pretty! But that’s not the twist I gave this particular Watermelon Agua Fresca.
This pretty little glass of watermelon goodness, is not your typical Watermelon Agua Fresca (which by the way, translates to Watermelon Fresh Water). In fact, I contemplated changing the title to fit the actual recipe… it would then be Watermelon Agua Rosa Fresca and that is because instead of using only fresh water, I used rose water too. And my what a wonderfully sweet and fragrant glass of Watermelon water did we enjoy!
- 3 cups of watermelon cut into smaller pieces
- 2½ cups of cold water
- ½ cup of cold rose water
- 1 tablespoon of lime juice
- 1 cup of Ice cubes
- In a blender, combine the watermelon, both waters and the lime juice.
- At this point, if it needs a little sweetening, add a tablespoon of white sugar and blend again.
- Grab a serving pitcher, and pour the contents of the blender pitcher through a strainer into the pitcher, pushing as much through the strainer as you can.
- Add a cup of ice and serve.
We’ve always enjoyed a wonderful glass of Watermelon Agua Fresca on a hot summer afternoon. Adding the rose water just took it to the next level.
