Cantaloupe Agua Fresca


I hope everyone had an excellent Cinco de Mayo yesterday & celebrated with lots of Mexican style food & drink! Even though the holiday’s officially over, that doesn’t mean we still can’t enjoy a good Mexican beverage every now & again, such as this Cantaloupe Agua Fresca. 

I’m going to keep this short because I have my first exam tomorrow & I’ve barely started studying yet & I have lots to do. So. Agua Fresca can more or less be made with any fruit you want once you combine it with ice, sugar, water & a little bit of lime juice – simple, right? I had some cantaloupe in the house, but next time I’ll probably try out a strawberry flavoured one.


The Boyf & I added lots of lime juice to ours, but the amounts are easily changed if for some strange reason you’d rather less lime, what’s wrong with you? I also found that it tasted better with lots of ice thrown in on top. I swear, it tasted like summer. 


Serves 4 


  • Half a ripe cantaloupe (or other small melon), diced
  • 1 ½ cups cold water
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 cups crushed Ice
  • juice of ½ – ¾ a lime per person
  • extra ice, to serve


  1. Combine the melon, water, sugar & ice in a blended & blend on high until smooth (rather slushy) & all the sugar has dissolved. 
  2. Pour into 4 glasses, add in the lime juice & stir well. 
  3. Add in a few more ice cubes & serve immediately.
