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

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Peel, seed, and coarsely chop melon.
  2. Place 2 cups melon in a blender, add enough water to cover melon, and blend well. Strain, reserving liquid.
  3. Place liquid in a 2-qt pitcher and discard solids.
  4. Repeat procedure with remaining cantaloupe.
  5. Add lime juice and sugar to pitcher and stir well. Serve over ice.

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.

Delicious, so delicious bernrome. I loved this quick and easy to make drink. The cantaloupe and lime are wonderful together, they create a very special drink. The flavor and texture are awesome. I think that this is my favorite cantaloupe treat to date. Thanks so much for sharing. Kudos Kato
