As summer approaches, try this cooling fresca as a replacement to sugary lemonade. The fresh watermelon and lime juice give this mock-tail a unique flavor and you can top it off with springs of cilantro for a touch of fresh garden flavor. It makes the perfect family-friendly beverage for a Mother’s Day brunch.

Watermelon Fresca
Serves 8

1 large watermelon (approximately 5 lbs.), seeded and cut into 1/2 inch cubes
1 3/4 cups water
1 teaspoon sugar
1/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
1/4 cup finely chopped cilantro, for garnish
Ice cubes, for serving


In a blender, processes the watermelon cubes with water until smooth. Pour mixture through a fine sieve and into a large pitcher. Add sugar, lime juice and fresh cilantro.

Refrigerate until ready to serve. Serve chilled over ice cubes.
