Making Watermelon Water

Biting into a slice of chilled watermelon is one of the most refreshing pleasures possible on a searingly hot summer day. But you can top that sensation with this easy, icy, blended drink.

Call it watermelon water or call it agua de sandía; it's the same, thirst-quenching treat.


  • 1 1/2 cups watermelon, cut into chunks
  • 2 T sugar
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1 cup of water
  • Ice

Kitchen Supplies

  • Sharp knife and cutting surface
  • Measuring cups and spoons
  • Blender
  • Zester (optional)
  • Lemon squeezer (optional)
  • Melon baller (optional)

What To Do

  1. If you're using a regular watermelon (and not the seedless variety), make sure all the seeds are removed before.
  2. Place the watermelon chunks in the blender with the sugar and the water.
    The key to this drink is to blend the watermelon very, very well. Do this, and you won't need to strain the drink. Watermelon water should be as smooth as possible. Blend until it is frothy.
  3. Squeeze the lime and stir in the lime juice.
  4. Chill the mixture, then pour the watermelon water into tall, ice-filled lemonade glasses. This recipe serves two.
  5. Garnish with slices of lime. You can also carve melon balls out of any leftover watermelon and add those to the drink as an additional garnish.

  • Try pure watermelon water: Omit the added sugar and omit the lime juice.
  • Make it watermelon slush: Prepare a batch of watermelon water, then stir each glassful into finely crushed ice.
  • Add lime zest: This is not for everyone, but finely grated lime zest will add an extra hint of citrus oil to the drink.
  • Dress it up: Serve the watermelon water in the hollowed-out rind of half a watermelon. It's an instant punch bowl.
