Spicy Cantaloupe Agua Fresca 

Agua frescas are a type of refreshing fruit-infused beverage popular in Mexico and Central America. Typically made by blending fruit, sugar and water, here we make our own version by combining fresh cantaloupe with tart lime and spicy chilies to create an infused water that's perfect for summer.

Did we mention that it would also make for a pretty tasty cocktail with the help of a little tequila? 

Spicy Cantaloupe Agua Fresca makes 28 oz

  • 12 2-inch cubes of fresh cantaloupe
  • 2 slices of fresh chilies
  • 3 oz of fresh lime juice
  • 1 & 1/2 oz of agave syrup
  • 28 oz of water
  1. Combine all ingredients in a 32 oz Mason jar. Seal and shake for 30 seconds.
  2. Let infuse, refrigerated, for six hours.
  3. Serve over ice. The infusion will last in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours.
