Agua fresca is spanish for "fresh water". It's usually a combination of fruit, sugar and water blended together to make a refreshing summertime beverage.
This version has watermelon, sugar and lime juice blended with vodka to make a tasty summer cocktail.
For this tasty treat, peel and dice half a small, seedless watermelon. You should have about 4 cup of fruit.
Place the watermelon in a blender. Add about 1/4 cup of water and a tablespoon of sugar.
Purée the mixture in a blender, then add the lime juice.
Strain the juice in a fine mesh strainer.
Press it through and discarding any solids. Refrigerate the liquid.
To make a cocktail, pour a shot of vodka over ice in a tall glass.
Add the watermelon agua fresca to fill the glass about 3/4 full.
Top the drink with club soda or sparkling water and garnish with a lime slice.
The refreshing taste of watermelon in a cocktail. You can't beat that on a hot day. Cheers!
