A delicious way to enjoy watermelon is in a watermelon drink recipe. Watermelon agua frescas are a popular drink in Mexico, California and other warm-weather locations, because they're a great thirst quencher in all that summer heat. This delicious drink is festive and fun to serve at holiday get-togethers, or anytime.

All you need to make this easy 4-ingredient watermelon beverage recipe are watermelon, sugar, lime juice and ice. Blend it up and prepare to sip your thirst away!

I think they would be good with either a jigger of vodka or tequila for a cocktail version.

You could add 1-2 oz. of your favorite spirit.
I would use stevia instead of sugar to save more calories

Try it without adding any sweetener. I sometimes omit it.
