As I mentioned last week, the current issue of Bon Apetit included an entire section on Agua Fresca. If I am not careful, this could become an obsession. For the 4th, I made this one and just can’t get enough of it. It’s so refreshing. And I absolutely love that everything in it is natural. No sugar added!
Working in batches, puree an entire watermelon, chopped in a blender until smooth. Pour into a bowl and let sit for 10 minutes, then spoon off foam. Set a fine-mesh sieve over a large pitcher. Strain puree into pitcher (I did this process twice to remove excess pulp). Makes about 8 cups of juice. Add 1 cup fresh grapefruit juice. Fill glasses with ice. Divide among glasses. Serves 8.
