Watermelon Aguas Frescas

BM# 100: Week 3, Day 2
Theme : Let’s have a toast!

Summer means watermelons and mangoes in India. Drinking Watermelon juice is very common to help cool the body down. It’s a straightforward no fuss recipe of blending watermelon with sugar.

Now coming to the recipe here, it’s the Mexican version of watermelon juice. Agua means water and fresco means cool in Spanish. Agua frescas means cool water and are not limited to just watermelons. It can made with a whole bunch of fruits and sometimes even cereals. Water and fruits are blended with sugar or sweetener of your choice and served with ice. I have seen some interesting recipes like tamarind agua Fresca and cinnamon rice water. You can read more about it here.

Read on for the recipe and prepare it this summer please :-)!

Makes 6-8 servings


  • 2 cups diced watermelon
  • 4 cups water
  • 1/4 cup sugar, or per taste
  • Ice cubes


  1. Blend the fruit with 2 cups water and sugar.
  2. Pour it into a pitcher and add the remaining 2 cups of water. Taste test and add more sugar if needed.
  3. Serve immediately with ice cubes.

  1. Wow! Beautiful clicks. I sat staring at the play of light in the picture and was wondering how I can recreate that effect :) Needless to say that watermelon in any form is welcome in summer which we are yet to sight of :)


  2. This version is so easy to prepare. I made watermelon aguas frescas from a magazine which was a bit complicated, complicated because I dread making sugar syrup. True, back home this is one of the most sought out drinks in summer!


    1. Usha the idea of simple syrup is to dissolve the sugar. Else sugar won’t dissolve in cold water. Sugar syrup is something I struggle as well.


  3. .. and I think you may want to edit the post to read as week 3, day 2 :) the previous post had the same caption – week 3, day 1
