Aguas frescas is a drink popular in Latin America, Mexico, and of course here in the United States.
In Latin America and Mexico it is primarily served by street vendors and in Mexican restaurants here in the States.
Find a nice ripe watermelon and if by chance your watermellon is not that sweet, not to worry. We can add a little simple sugar to the mix.
I show you how easy it is to make simple sugar, so I’ve got you covered. Why use simple sugar instead of just stirring in some sugar?
Well for one thing, stirring in sugar doesn’t dissolve very easily. Simple sugar is already dissolved so it goes in great.
This is the perfect drink when summer brings a hot day! It will cool and refresh you.
Here are the ingredients:
1 ripe watermelon
1 sprig of fresh rosemary
Cut the watermelon in half and scoop out the flesh and fill a blender with it. Add 1 and 1/2 cups to 2 cups of cold water and blend for about 1 min.
Strain the juice into a jar or pitcher. Taste and add simple sugar to your liking. Roll the lime before cutting and squeeze half a lime into the watermelon water.
Toss in the sprig of rosemary. Chill.
When ready to serve, fill a glass with ice and stir before pouring into glasses. Garnish with a lime wheel on the glass or a piece of cut watermelon.
Enjoy this refreshing summer drink. It’s satisfying not to mention healthy!
