Agua Fresca Sports Drink


25.5 oz watermelon
4.5 Tbsp evaporated cane sugar
1/2 tsp salt
4 cups hot water
14 Tbsp lime juice


  1. Wash the outside of the watermelon, then cut off the rind. Weigh the remaining fruit and dice (you are looking for 25.5 oz of usable fruit).
  2. Place the diced watermelon into a blender and purée.
  3. Place 4 cups of hot water into a large pitcher, add evaporated cane sugar, and salt. Stir until dissolved.
  4. Using a fine mesh strainer, strain the puréed watermelon into the pitcher with the water, salt, and evaporated cane sugar.
  5. Add lime juice and stir to combine.

Notes: Sports drinks provide a strategic amount of carbohydrates to support exercise performance and fluids. They also replenish electrolytes to support proper hydration. Choose a sports drink when exercising for longer than an hour, if the environment is very hot, and/or if your perspiration is salty and heavy.
