Watermelon Agua Fresca

Perfect for a summer day.


Refreshing and not too sweet, this Bon Appétit adapted recipe is perfectly delicious. You could just sip it on ice or if you’re feeling like an adult beverage is more appropriate you can simply add chilled vodka!

Makes a large pitcher


1 large, whole seedless watermelon (about 10lbs), cut into chunks

2 cups of Ruby Red grapefruit juice


Using a powerful blender (I use my Vita-Mix), process the watermelon until it’s puréed. Let the foam settle on the top. Scoop off as much as you can, but don’t worry about it too much or you’ll scoop off the watermelon juice, too. You may have to do this in batches. Add the watermelon juice to a large pitcher. You need a very large one. (I got mine at a hardware store and for $10 it was a steal) Add the 2 cups of Ruby Red and stir. Serve over ice.

Note: There is some settling of watermelon at the bottom of the jar. Simply stir again and serve.
