Watermelon Agua Fresca Recipe

Watermelon Agua Fresca Cocktail

Hi guys! It's been far too long since I've posted. I feel a bit like a broken record but as some of you probably know, I recently started a business designing wedding invitations and it's taking up so much of my time that it's been hard keeping up with everything else. Even my lovely Wellnesting readers.

But I wanted to leave you with this Watermelon Agua Fresca recipe I recently posted on my Pipkin Paper Company blog because it's just that good. If you're not familiar with Agua Fresca, it's a light fruit juice mixed with a bit of sugar and some water. I added a splash of vodka to turn it into a cocktail but it's just as good without the alcohol, so feel free to leave it out.

And if you get the chance to make it I'd love to hear what you think, so let me know in the comments!

Watermelon Agua Fresca

Watermelon Agua Fresca Cocktail Recipe


3 cups watermelon, sliced
1 cup water
1/3 cup agave nectar
1/2 lime juiced
1/2 cup vodka


  1. Place the watermelon, water, sugar, lime juice and vodka in a blender or food processor. Puree on high until smooth.
  2. Pour into two tall glasses (if you like, you can strain the watermelon pulp from the liquid, but I like to leave mine in).
  3. Garnish with a watermelon wedge and some extra limes.
