Recipe by Chef John
"This is my all-time favorite summertime drink. When it's hot and humid and you're totally parched, there's nothing as refreshing, as revitalizing, and as restorative as ice-cold watermelon agua fresco. It's one of life's great drinkable pleasures."

white sugar, or to taste
I have made this last month from another recipe I found that was similar, but I used soda water to give it a fizz, you can also add some vodka for an adult drink. Very good.
Ok, so this is really like a watermelonade than agua fresco. I added some fresh mint and it was better.
Not a success :(
Delicious and easy.. going to try the other half with a different sweetener and some bubbles
