I found this recipe in a Texas Highways cookbook. My family has always made agua fresca de melon, but never with limes.

Very refreshing in this summer heat. Made as posted but I only used 1 tablespoon sugar and it worked for me. The lime juice was the perfect finishing touch. Thanks for posting bernrome. Mmade for Choose Your Event Party.
