Chef John's Watermelon Agua Fresca
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 fresca. It's one of life's great drinkable pleasures.
Recipe Summary test
Flesh from half a watermelon equals 5 to 6 cups.
