Chef John's Watermelon Agua Fresca Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 1)

Like other persons suggested I added lots of lemon juice and mint and it turned out very good and refreshing. I did NOT strain the fruit puree/juice as we like the pulp. I shall try again with different combinaisons of summer fruits.

"Watermelonade" is exactly what this is - here in Mexico, agua fresca con limon is limonada, or lemonade. Where I live, on the west coast of Mexico, agua fresca is made with every fruit imaginable. I had some guests for dinner recently and the evening was very warm. Half of our guests drank this delightful drink (with added sliced limes) and half had Watermelon Sangria, also from this site. Both were wonderful, but I preferred the agua fresca. And straining the pulp makes all the difference - thanks for the tip, Chef John.

Ok, so this is really like a watermelonade than agua fresco. I added some fresh mint and it was better.

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.
